SLGA Team Captains announced - Lanarkshire well represented

Congratulations to Fiona Norris, Elaine Cuthill and Susan Wood who have been appointed captains for the European Ladies' Team Championship, the European Girls' Team Championship and the under 16s' Championship respectively.
From the SLGA Website:
Following two seasons in charge of the Home International team, Fiona Norris (Hamilton) has been named Captain of the Scottish side for the European Championships at Fulford in York in July.
“It is good to be involved with Scotland again this year,” said the former international player. “I am hoping to visit Fulford very soon. I know it is a wonderful championship course and has held many big tournaments in the past."
“Our team will be certainly ready for the challenge and I am sure it will be an advantage that the Championships are taking place in the British Isles.  Scotland has many talented players and we will be aiming to put in a strong performance against the very best in Europe.”
Karen Marshall (Baberton) takes over as Captain for the Home Internationals. The Scottish team will have home advantage at Scotscraig from September 11-13. Scotland last hosted the event at Irvine in 2009 when the side finished runners-up to Wales. Scotland went on to win the title at Whitchurch the following season.
Elaine Cuthill (Lanark) retains Captaincy of the European Girls’ team, while Laura Walker (Nairn Dunbar) is the new skipper of the Girls’ Home International team. 
Susan Wood (Drumpellier) takes over as Captain of the Scottish Under-16 team, while Helen Faulds (Douglas Park) extends her period at the helm for the Senior International matches and she will also Captain Scotland at the European Senior Ladies’ Team Championship.
