SELBY'S Ellie Goodall will be among the golfers seeking to win the English Women’s Amateur Championship next week at Lindrick Golf Club in South Yorkshire.

The high-quality field includes Cara Gainer, who won the English women’s matchplay, Sophie Lamb, the British stroke play champion, Gemma Clews, the Welsh stroke play winner, Emily Price, the English stroke play champion, and Lily May Humphreys, the English U16 girls’ champion and recent winner of the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters.

Challenging them will be a host of internationals including Yorkshire’s Curtis Cup player Rochelle Morris (Woodsome Hall) and Olivia Winning (Rotherham) while Leicestershire's Lianna Bailey (Kirby Muxloe) will be playing alongside her sisters, Annabel and Jessica.

Among the other Yorkshire players is a second set of sisters, Abigail and Jessica Smee from Hessle.

The host club, Lindrick, will be represented by Mia Eales-Smith, while another ten Yorkshire players are in the field: Kirsty Beckwith (Alwoodley), Charlotte Heath (Huddersfield), Hannah Holden (Lightcliffe), Olivia Jay and Toni-Louise Naylor (Waterton Park), Holly Morgan (Hallamshire), Laura Morrison (Garforth), Jasmine Reese (Hickleton), Nicola Slater and Melissa Wood (Woodsome Hall).

This is the second time the championship has been played at Lindrick and the players will be tested by a championship course which has previously hosted the Ryder Cup and the Curtis Cup.

The English Women’s Amateur will be played from Tuesday July 18 to Thursday July 20. All competitors will play 18 holes on each of the first two days. The field is then cut to 40 players who play 36 holes on the final day. Spectators are welcome.
