TALENTED Stoke by Nayland Golf Club youngster Lily May Humphreys has added the Helen Holm Scottish Women’s Open Championship to her growing list of achievements.

The 16-year-old, who is the reigning English women's amateur champion, claimed the prestigious title at Royal Troon GC.

She finished one shot clear of runner-up Chloe Goadby, to win the title.

Humphreys has received another boost after earning selection for Great Britain and Ireland's Curtis Cup team that plays next month.

Stoke by Nayland Ladies contested the Rita Blewitt Trophy in a drawn 18-hole stableford competition on the Constable course.

The greens had recently been scarified making putting rather tricky, however the fairways were in great conditions considering they had been so wet only two weeks before.

The overall winner was Fiz Grundy, who scored a fantastic 36 points.

In the Silver Division, the winner was Pamela Randell with 36 points ahead of runner-up Corinne Jackson (33 points).

In third place was Sue Spittlehouse, with 28 points.

Bronze Division results: 1 Fiz Grundy (36pts), 2 Nora Hutchinson (31pts), 3 Lesley Hitchcock (29pts).

Copper Division result: 1 Barbara Rowe (18pts).

Stoke by Nayland took on The Essex GC in their first match of this year's Bronze Shield, in sunny but chilly and windy conditions.

Jane Golding, a rookie, set the bar high with a 5&4 win while Corinne Jackson, who was out second, lost her match on the 19th hole.

Debbie Howlett had a 3&2 win in a game that ebbed and flowed but in which she was never down.

Edel Rew also experienced a closely-fought match, snatching victory in the last two holes to win 2&1.

Out last but finishing first was Hilary Cairns, who was Stoke by Nayland's other rookie player.

She won her match 7&5 to make a magnificent start to her matchplay career.

The Stoke by Nayland Bronze team consisted of Corinne Jackson, Edel Rew, Hilary Cairns, Lesley Hitchcock (team captain), Debbie Howlett, Jane Golding and Annie Major (caddy).

Stoke by Nayland GC's Silver Trophy team achieved their first victory of the season after winning 3-2 at Ballards Gore.

The match was played in almost continuous rain, with frequent extremely heavy downpours.

The Stoke by Nayland team was led by Bev Thomson, who won her match by one hole.

Sue Latham, after being three holes down, made a valiant recovery to win her match 3&2.

The final pairing saw Lesley Garnett win her game in an exciting finish by two up, with the match swinging back and forwards from the onset.

The other two games, although won by the home team, were also very close.
