Golf ELY City Golf Club’s Laura Todd won the County Plate at the weekend’s Cambridgeshire Ladies County Championships.

In the quarter-finals, Laura had a comfortable 7 & 6 victory over Gillian Attwood (Gogs), whilst Sharren Kjenstad (Ramsey) won 6 & 4 against Abbotsley’s Maria Bayes.

Brampton Park’s Ros Irons produced some solid golf in defeating St Ives Paula Ewing 6 & 4. Junior county vice captain Megan Willis (Old Nene) showed great composure as she went to the 20th hole to secure victory over Ely City’s Elaine Bertram.

In the semi-final, Todd defeated Sharren Kjenstad 4 & 3 and the same result saw Ros Irons defeat Megan Willis.

The final proved an interesting battle, with neither player taking control, the lead changed hands throughout the round. It was no surprise when the match went down the 19th hole where Todd clinched victory with a solid putt for par.
