The men’s and women’s Home Internationals will take place at Machynys Golf Club in Wales August 9-11, with the boys’ and girls’ events taking place at Lindrick Golf Club in Yorkshire August 8-10.

Sophia Fullbrook, 17, and Isla McDonald-O’Brien, 16, will make their first England Women’s appearances at the Home Internationals while it will also be a Women’s Home Internationals debut for Patience Rhodes and Bishop Auckland-based Jess.

The sister duo of Mimi and Patience Rhodes add vital experience to the women’s team, along with Rosie and Lottie Woad, who picked up silver medals with Patience for England Women in July’s European Team Championship.

Maggie meanwhile is included in the girls’ side once again. She will team up with Sadie Adams (Royal Birkdale GC, Cheshire), Lili-Rose Hunt (Redditch GC, Worcestershire), Nellie Ong (Eaton GC Norwich, Norfolk), Ellise Rymer (Lincoln GC, Lincolnshire), Amelia Wan (Sherwood Forest GC, Nottinghamshire) and Ellen Yates (West Hill GC, Surrey).

Finally, England Boys’ will be represented by Hugh Adams (Hagley GC, Worcestershire), Josh Berry (Doncaster GC, Yorkshire), Sam Easterbrook (Olton GC, Warwickshire), Frazer Jones (Kirby Muxloe GC, Leicestershire), Kris Kim (Walton Heath GC, Surrey), Jack Lee (Rochester & Cobham Park GC, Kent), Harry Malin (Bognor Regis GC, Sussex), Jake Plumb (The Gog Magog GC, Cambridgeshire) and Drew Sykes (Golf at Goodwood, Sussex).

Over the course of three days, each nation (England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland) will play each other once to decide who takes home the title. The format for both the women’s/girls’ and men’s/boys’ competitions is seven foursome games and 14 single games (six women and eight men). Team positions will be determined by the highest number of match points.
