Sophie Lamb has been selected for the England team to defend the Ladies’ Home International title at Royal Wimbledon Golf Club, Surrey next week.

The Clitheroe youngster joins Sammy Fuller of Surrey, Sammie Giles of Cornwall, Sophie Keech of Dorset and Inci Mehmet of Surrey.

They will join established internationals Gemma Clews of Cheshire, Hollie Muse of Lancashire and Bethan Popel of Gloucestershire, who all played a part in last year’s nail-biting victory.

The reserves are Eloise Healey (West Lancashire) and Lianna Bailey (Kirby Muxloe).

The event is held between September 9-11th.

Sophie, 17, was runner-up in the recent ANNIKA Invitational Europe 2015 in Sweden, she tied eighth in the British stroke play and was fifth in both the English girls’ and English women’s championships and fourth in the Irish open strokeplay.
