Slinfold golfers keen to repeat knockout success

Slinfold’s all conquering ladies section continue to make stunning progress in both county and national competitions.

The Sussex LGU Morrice Foursomes team of Karen Ashcroft, Beckie Mabbutt, Diane King, Amber Cockram, Cathy Downey and Donna Davies emphatically saw off Brighton and Hove in a 3-0 victory.

Ashcroft and Downey won their match 3&2, Beckie Mabbutt and Diane King won by an even bigger margin, 5&3, while Donna Davies and Amber Cockram fought back from two down at the halfway stage to force a concession on the fifthteeth green as Slinfold booked a quarter final tie against Bognor, at West Chiltington.

Meanwhile, Ashcroft and Downey will resume their partnership in the Daily Mail Foursomes when they play Wildwood in the fifth round.

Last year the pair were third from a total of more than 1,500 clubs throughout the UK.
