In the final today England got off to a fast start, up in four of the five matches after nine holes.

England put the first point on the board with a 4&3 win from Paula Carver, her third victory of the tournament. A second point closely followed with a 2&1 victory in the foursomes match, leaving England within just one point of their second European Senior Ladies’ Team Championship title.

Macarena Campomanes, the reigning European Senior Ladies’ Champion, was two holes down to Helen Lowe after nine holes but turned the match around, winning 1 up on the 18th green to give the Spanish Team their 1st point.

It wasn’t enough, as Aileen Greenfield claimed her third win of the week and the decisive point for England, with a 2&1 victory on the 17th green.  The final score was England 3.5 to 1.5 Spain.
