Senior Scots move closer to title at

Newport after good final morning

Scotland moved closer to winning the Senior Women's Home Internationals title for the first time at Newport Golf Club, Wales this morning by winning two foursomes and halving the other against defending champions Wales.
That meant the Scots, captained by Pamela Williamson, needed only 1 1/2pt for a draw or 2pt from the final set of five singles to land the Sue Johnson Trophy.
Ireland led England 2-1 after their foursomes.
Heather Anderson (Alyth) and Fiona Hunter (Baberton) halved the top foursome with Vicki Thomas and Jean O'Connor. Fiona holed a bunker shot at the 16th to square the match and the last two holes were halved.
Mary Smith (Tain) and Moira Thomson (Gullane Ladies) won by 3 and 2 against Janet Doleman and Jane Tees. The Scots were never behind after winning the first, second and fourth.
Fiona De Vries (St Rule) maintained her 100 per cent winning record when, in partnership with Dunbar's Noreen Fenton, she won the last foursome by 4 and 2 against Ann Lewis and Denise Richards.
Here again the Scots were in the driving seat after going three up after four holes.
