India Clyburn has been called up by England for another top event.

She is included in one of the two teams who will represent England Golf in the Vilmorin Cup at the French U21 ladies’ championship at St Cloud, from April 2-6.

India, the younger sister of European tour professional Holly, is in Team A alongside Alice Hewson of Hertfordshire and Inci Mehmet of Surrey.

Team B is Sammie Giles of Cornwall, Sophie Lamb of Lancashire and Bethan Popel of Gloucestershire.

The Vilmorin Cup is played alongside the two rounds of stroke play qualifying at the championship and the best two scores from each team count each day.

After 36 holes the leading 32 players go forward to the matchplay stages of the championship for the Esmond Trophy and the next best 16 players aged under 18 contest the Cartier Trophy.

India (18) won the 2014 England Golf Girls’ Order of Merit in her last season as a junior.

Her individual successes included winning the English girls’ championship, the Scottish junior open, the girls’ title at the Daily Telegraph junior championship and the Royal Birkdale scratch trophy.

She was in England’s winning teams at the girls’ and ladies’ Home Internationals – winning all six of her matches at the girls’ event.
