GB & I Curtis Cup Team Announced


For the first time since 1994, four Scottish players have been selected by the Ladies' Golf Union to compete on home soil in the 35th Curtis Cup.

Carly Booth, (15), will become the youngest ever GB & I team member, superceding fellow Scot Jane Connachan who, in 1980 played at the age of 16. Krystle Caithness, (19), a reserve in 2006, Michele Thomson, (20) and Sally Watson, (16) make up the quartet.

Welsh star, Breanne Loucks, (20), a member of the 2006 GB & I side has again been selected to play in the biennial match over the historic Old Course, St Andrews from 30 May to 1 June 2008.

Completing the team of eight and making their first appearance in the contest are England's Elizabeth Bennett, (25), Jodi Ewart, (20) and Florentyna Parker, (18). 

Mary McKenna, Captain of the GB & I team said; " I am delighted with the team that has been selected. It was no easy task with the quality of the squad being so high.  I feel very confident that we can win the Curtis Cup on this historic occasion."

This year, a new three-day format of play has been introduced, featuring three foursomes and three four-ball matches on the first two days.  All eight players will play singles matches on Sunday to conclude the competition.
