All-conquering Castle Ladies sweep the board

Bamburgh Castle Ladies’ golf teams have had a very exciting and successful season.

For the first time in the club’s history, they have won the Northumberland County Shield Division One.

And the second team, also playing in the County Shield, won Division Six, gaining promotion to Division Five.

Lastly, but by no means least, the North Northumberland League team won their league for the first time for 26 years.

A party was held in the clubhouse, where players past and present gathered to celebrate the remarkable achievement.

Alison Lambert, lady captain, said: “We may be only a small club but the commitment and camaraderie from the 24 ladies involved are possibly second to none.

“This achievement is not only fantastic for the ladies but also for the club as a whole”.
