Fourteen-year-old Irish twins Leona and Lisa Maguire have been included in the squad for Britain and Ireland's Curtis Cup match against the United States in Massachusetts next June.

Eleven of the 20 players are teenagers, but if selected the Maguires would not be the youngest ever to appear in the match.

Michelle Wie was 14 at Formby in 2004 and the sisters turn 15 in November.

The Maguires have already appeared against Continental Europe in the Vagliano Trophy and last year Leona beat Lisa in the final of the Irish championship.
