Emily Toy to represent England in match against Spain

Emily Toy has been selected to take part in the biennial match against Spain at Formby Golf Club on the weekend of April the 27th and 28th.

The players who won the European Nations Cup last weekend are all in England’s mixed team for next week’s international against Spain at Formby Golf Club, Lancashire.

Champions Ben Jones, Tom Plumb, Tom Sloman and Bailey Gill will be joined by the women’s European Nations Cup bronze medallists, Georgina Blackman, Emily Toy and Bel Wardle.

The 10-strong team will be completed by Jake Burnage, Ben Hutchinson and Lily May Humphreys.

The players will follow in the steps of golfing giants as they take part in this biennial match, on the weekend of April 27-28. Over the years, it’s been contested by the likes of Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood, Sergio Garcia and Jose Maria Olazabal.

The match started in 1985 as a men’s fixture with England leading Spain 14-2 by 2013. It became a mixed event in 2015 and England have won both matches played so far.

The teams compete for the Seve Ballesteros Trophy and this year’s match will be played in memory of Spain’s Celia Barquin Arozamena, the 2018 European Ladies’ Champion who died in the USA last year.

Congratulations and good luck to Emily and the team.
