They are: Cloe Frankish (image © Leaderboard Photography) and Mollie Lawrence of Kent, Sammy Fuller of Surrey, Hollie Muse and Louisa Brunt of Lancashire, and Billie-Jo Smith of Lincolnshire.

All six are members of England Golf training squads and this event provides developing players with an excellent opportunity to travel and prepare together as a squad.

England Golf players have a very good record in this championship. Last year, Alice Hewson of Hertfordshire became the fourth successive English winner of the individual title and also helped to win the team prize, alongside Sophie Madden of Essex and Eloise Healey of Lancashire.
