Double win for GB&I against Continent of Europe

Great Britain and Ireland have won both the St Andrews and Jacques Leglise trophies at Barsebäck in Sweden. The GB&I men’s team defeated their counterparts from the Continent of Europe 14-10 to win the biennial St Andrews Trophy for the first time since 2008, while the under-18 GB&I team edged out a close match by 12 ½ to 11 ½ to retain the Jacques Leglise Trophy they won at Royal St David’s in Wales last year.

Nigel Edwards (pictured with the GB&I St Andrews team), captain of the GB&I St Andrews Trophy team, said, “It was great to get a win today. They came at us very strongly in the afternoon but I have a lot of faith in our players. Especially in the games coming down to the closing holes they really performed. They performed very well under pressure and they deserved their victory.”
