Gatton's Rita plays for St Pierre return


Daily Mail
28 May 2013

RITA RICE moved one step closer to a return to Marriott St Pierre in the Daily Mail Foursomes as she ended the ladies of Slinfold’s hopes of a third successive appearance at finals week.
The Gatton Manor golfer reached the quarter-finals with Kim Newman when finals week was last at the Chepstow venue three years ago.
Now Rita and Ruth O’Mahoney have made it into this year’s fourth round after a 5&4 victory over Beckie Mabbutt and Rosie Jarratt, from the Slinfold club, in round three.
The defeat was a major disappointment for the Slinfold ladies because Karen Ashcroft and Cathy Downey went all the way to the final last year before losing to Stocksbridge & District’s Hilja and Liana O’Sullivan, having also represented the Sussex club at finals week in 2011.
Braehead’s Laura Bissett was also hoping for a return trip to Marriott St Pierre three years after making the last 16 with Jennifer Ure.
But Laura and Norma Kerr were beaten 3&2 by Bridge of Allan’s Catherine Simpson and Sandra Green in this year’s third round.
Royal Blackheath’s Ann Greatores and Teresa Gibson and Ealing’s Anne Koychev and Noreen Barnes-Hoggett, who all reached finals week in 2011, and Dunfermline’s Sam Burton and Sarah Govan, who were there last year, all went out in this year’s third round.
The Royal Blackheath women lost by one hole to Sidcup’s Majella Kenny and Angela Rossi while the Ealing girls were beaten 2&1 by Royal Wimbledon’s Janice Buswell and Sally Thwaite but the ladies of Dunfermline were edged out at the first extra hole by Craigie Hill’s Jillian Milne and Sandra Dempsey.
The last 16 men’s clubs and the last 16 women’s clubs will compete for the two trophies at finals week in October.
