TEAM captain Sue Clements led by example as she beat former Yorkshire champion Emma Brown in a sudden-death play-off to help Kirkbymoorside knock out champions Malton & Norton in the Mail on Sunday competition.

Malton & Norton won the event in Spain last October, but fell at the first hurdle in an exciting tussle at Kirkbymoorside.

The contest finished all square at 2½ - 2½ after the five singles matches.

Anne Farndale and Clements won their matches for the hosts and Claire Dyson halved.

In the play-off, Clements birdied the first extra hole to take Kirkbymoorside through.

Their victorious team comprised Farndale, president of the ladies' section, Pauline Griffiths, Dyson, Vicky Tomlinson and Clements.
