​Former Leighton Buzzard golf club ladies captain Angela Samuels returned from a sunshine holiday break to win one of the biggest pieces of silverware in the trophy cabinet at the Plantation Road club.

​No stranger to winning in her 37 years as a Leighton member, Angela won the coveted Ladies Rosewear Bowl after carding 35 points, with long-time friend Jackie Phelps pipping Anne Tilbury on countback after they both finished with 33 points.

“I’ve not won a singles event for some years, so it was a relief to get back into winning ways,” said Angela.
