Defending champion Rachel Jennings (pictured) made her way comfortably into the matchplay stages of the French lady junior championship at St Cloud.

Her scores of 75 and level par 71 – which included two birdies and an eagle - saw her safely through in 10th place. Her first round opponent is Laura Chemarin of France, who qualified in 23rd place.

Rachel, 20, from Izaak Walton in Staffordshire is England's sole survivor in the championship matchplay for the Esmond Trophy.

However, Lincolnshire's Holly Clyburn has played her way into the knockout stages of the Cartier Trophy. This is contested by the top 16 players, aged 18 and under, who failed to qualify for the Esmond Trophy.

Holly, 18, from Woodhall Spa, will play Camilla Hedberg Bertrand of Spain in the first round.

There was disappointment for the other four members of the English Women's Golf Association squad who failed to qualify for the matchplay events.
