BROGAN Townend has been named in the England Golf team which will defend the title at the Girls’ Home Internationals at Radyr Golf Club, Wales, in August.

The Clitheroe Royal Grammar School Sixth Form student, who recently finished her final exams, was a member of last year’s successful team which won the tournament for the fourth year in a row.

The 18-year-old, from Pleasington, is the Faldo Series girls’ champion, and has previously won the Under-16 title.

She helped Lancashire to reach the 2012 county finals and has been runner-up in the Northern Ladies’ Championship.

She is a past winner of the prestigious scratch events, The Leveret and the Pleasington Putter.

The two-time Lancashire junior champion will have a busy August as she heads to America to become the first English golfer to attend the University of Texas at San Antonio.
