Maguires to skip Vagliano Trophy

The Maguire twins, Leona and Lisa, have declared themselves unavailable for selection for the GB&I Vagliano Trophy team to meet the Continent of Europe at Chantilly this month.

Selectors will meet in Edinburgh this morning to choose the nine-strong side. With the 18-year-old Maguires of Slieve Russell out of contention, it is likely there will be just one Irish player in the side – Stephanie Meadow, the 2012 Ladies British Open Amateur Champion from Royal Portrush.

Meanwhile, the British Championship at Machynys Peninsula in South Wales was won by Dorset teenager Georgia Hall.

Lisa Maguire reached the quarter-finals of the championship while Leona was a third-round loser.
