The semi-final match-up with Scotland looked like being a classic – and didn’t disappoint.

Scotland qualified for the knockout phase as top seeds with Women’s Amateur Champion Louise Duncan, Scottish champion Chloe Goadby and Hannah Darling stalwarts of their line-up.

Scotland were quick out the traps to win both morning foursomes.

But while England were down, the team was far from out.

Toy once again led by example in the first singles game to down Darling by 3&1. In fact, she ended the week undefeated in singles.

The Cornish golfer must love the links at Royal County Down – this was also the scene for her victory in the Women’s Amateur Championship in 2019.

McGinty recorded the same winning margin against Goadby before the match came down to two clutch encounters.

Fuller holed putt after putt on the back nine to keep her match with Hazel McGarvie all square. With the game tied after 18 holes, Fuller eventually closed out the win on the 19th hole.

Belsham also showed typical grit to battle back from two down to defeat Shannon McWilliam by one hole and take England into the final.

Many congratulations go to Scotland on a fantastic week  -- Top Qualifiers and reaching the semi finals against England plus Hannah Darling being the leading individual score in the qualifying rounds.
