The Team which will represent the SVLGA at next month's Jamboree at Frilford Heath Golf Club, Oxfordshire is :

Jennifer Bryans  EAST
Fiona de Vries  MIDLAND
Donna Jackson  WEST
Gillian Kyle  WEST
Lesley Lloyd  WEST
Lorna McKinlay MIDLAND
Frances Millar  NORTHERN
Sheena Wood  NORTHERN

Most of the Team selected were part of the successful Scottish Team which beat the Irish Seniors at Murcar in April, bringing home the Mary McKenna Perpetual Trophy after a nine-year absence. Joining us for the Jamboree will be Jennifer Bryans, the current Vets' Champion who recently successfully defended her East Vets title and newly-crowned Senior Stroke-Play Champion Frances Millar. Donna Jackson is making her Jamboree debut and brings with her a wealth of both County and International experience, not to say youth, being the youngest member of the Team!
The Team comprises an excellent mix of personalities who all bring not only their golfing skills with them but a great Team spirit and eagerness to be successful.
The Jamboree matches will take place from the 8th to the 10th of August at Frilford Heath GC, Oxfordshire. The foursomes matches start at 8.30am and the singles at 1.05pm each day. If anyone should be in the area and would like to come and support us, you would be made most welcome.

Kathleen Sutherland, Captain
Ellie Whyte, Vice Captain
