We expect that local communities will welcome HMS Talent and HMS Triumph and their crews and families when they arrive in Scotland later this decade.Our commitment to Faslane becoming home to all Royal Navy submarines from 2020 will bring hundreds of jobs and investment to the West of Scotland.There is no change to the decision to make HMNB Clyde the single integrated submarine operating base and submarine centre of specialisation by 2020.However, to have HMS Torbay and HMS Trenchant remain in Devonport until they decommission represents better value for money than to move them so near to the end of their service lives.[mappress mapid=”14564″]Press Release; Image: UK MoD View post tag: Move November 28, 2014 View post tag: UK View post tag: Trafalgar View post tag: Clyde Share this articlelast_img read more

England girls score Ôconvincing’ win over Switzerland

first_img19 Aug 2014 England girls score Ôconvincing’ win over Switzerland England’s girls scored a convincing 7-2 win over Switzerland in their U16 international at Heswall Golf Club in Cheshire. They played in difficult conditions of blustery winds and some rain which, coupled with the fast greens, set a tough challenge. But they coped well, particularly in the afternoon singles. England coach Scott Godfrey commented: “For some of the girls this was the first time they’d played at this level and they enjoyed it, got on well as a team and produced a good result. It was a convincing win.” The team led 2-1 after the morning foursomes, thanks to a turnaround in fortunes by Mollie Lawrence of Kent and Amelia Williamson of Norfolk. They were four down with eight to play but won on the last to give England the advantage. “We were looking at going into lunch down but they played the back nine very, very well and gave us a lead,” said Scott. Natasha Slater went out first in the singles and kept the momentum going. The new Scottish U14 champion from Cumbria had a handful of birdies in the front nine and led by three at the turn, before winning 4/3. “She got us off to a great start,” said Scott. English U15 champion Emily Price (image © Leaderboard Photography) soon followed her in to the winner’s circle with a 7/6 success – despite losing the first hole! The Warwickshire player was under par for her match, producing an outstanding performance for the team. Solid play brought wins for Amelia Williamson and Martha Lewis of Surrey. Meanwhile, Lancashire’s Louisa Brunt was trailing by one hole with four to play, but fashioned a strong finish, helped by a couple of birdies, to win on the last.
