Hertfordshire Golf's ladies will play on the national stage after winning the Eastern Region County Match Days.

Played at Stoke-by-Nayland, north of Colchester, the annual event is contested by the counties of Suffolk, Bedfordshire, Cambs & Hunts, Norfolk, Essex and Hertfordshire.

The format for the three-day event this year was new with each county playing two others on Friday and Saturday.

Each inter-county match consisted of two foursomes followed by three singles matches, with two points for a win and one point for a tie.

By the end of it, Herts had accrued five points and were one point behind Essex going into Sunday's game between the two.

And in the crucial decider Herts won 3-2 to get through.

They now go on to play in the finals at Denham Golf Club near Uxbridge in September.
