Clitheroe golfer Sophie Lamb is team reserve for England Golf at this weekend’s Nations Cup event at the Helen Holm Scottish open stroke play championship.

Internationals Gemma Clews and India Clyburn will represent England at the 54-hole event, which runs from tomorrow until Sunday on the Portland and Old courses at Royal Troon.

The team event is played alongside the individual competition, with both scores counting in each round.

Clews recently retained her title in the Delamere Comboy scratch tournament at her home club.

India Clyburn (Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire) won a host of titles in 2014, including the English girls’ championship and the England Golf girls’ order of merit.

Clews, Clyburn and Lamb were all in the England team which beat France in the run-up to the French U21 championship.
