After retaining the trophy last year, the pressure was on the Newmarket-based players to make it a hat-trick of victories.

However, the team comprising of Marcella Tuttle, Sarah Greenall and Lynn Lambert all proved themselves to be up to the challenge in the 18-hole stroke play competition, played at Brampton Park GC.

In ideal conditions, the trio all recorded scores of 71 for an impressive team score of 213, a hefty 12 shots clear of their nearest rivals.

Royston, Lakeside Lodge and Ely City were all level on 225 and it took a countback to determine that Royston finished as runners-up by virtue of the two lowest individual scores, followed by Lakeside Lodge in third position.
