NGL Ladies Cecil Leitch

Local knowledge appears to be the key to early success in the Ladies Cecil Leitch League as Northants County, Rushden and Peterborough Milton all recorded victories on their own courses.

Convincing wins from Andrea Alston (5&4), Irene McGowan (6&4), Geeta Patel (6&5) and Dawn Mallard-Parker (3&2) helped County beat Delapre 4-1 in Group A.

Rushden overcame a loss in the opening tie to beat Whittlebury by the same scoreline in Group D, while Milton got the better of Northampton 3-2 in their Group C contest.
