Northants County win trophy for the second time


Daily Mail
15 Oct 2014

There’s obviously something in the Scottish air that agrees with the women of Northamptonshire County when it comes to the Daily Mail Foursomes.
The finals of the tournament have now been held at Marriott Dalmahoy, just outside Edinburgh, three times - and twice the name of the Northamptonshire club has gone on to the women’s trophy.
Stephanie Goodings and Susanne Barrick also came from behind yesterday to lift the women’s trophy, six years after fellow Northamptonshire County members Kelly Hanwell and Kirstie Jennings did the same at the same venue.
Susanne, 52, said: ‘It’s just been great. It hasn’t really sunk in yet but we have just loved it. We have some Scottish members at our club but I don’t know what it is about coming here.’
Stephanie and Susanne trailed Marriott Worsley Park’s Jean Kelly and Mary Finney from the ninth to the 13th hole before reeling off three wins in a row, and a birdie at the 16th put them two up. A half at the next was enough to give them the trophy after a 2&1 win.
It meant Susanne, who played in the same Northamptonshire team as Kelly and Kirstie about 10 years ago, eclipsed her team’s performance in the Mail on Sunday Classic three years ago, when Northamptonshire County went out in the semi-finals in Spain. Stephanie, 65, was the non-playing captain on that occasion.
In the semi-finals, St Medan’s Evelyn McLellan and Elizabeth Maiden were bowled over 4&3 by the eventual champions, while the hopes of Karen Banbrook and Gwen Stuart, from Marlborough, went up in smoke at the first extra hole against Marriott Worsley Park.
RESULTS
SEMI-FINALS: St Medan (Evelyn McLellan and Elizabeth Maiden, combined handicap 26) lost to Northamptonshire County (Stephanie Goodings and Susanne Barrick, 28) 4&3;Marriott Worsley Park (Jean Kelly and Mary Finney, 19) bt Marlborough (Karen Banbrook and Gwen Stuart, 26) at 19th.
FINAL: Northamptonshire County bt Marriott Worsley Park 2&1.
