The qualification period ended after the conclusion of the Ladies Scottish Open, where the leading three from the Ladies European Tour points list and the next five from the World Golf Rankings secured their places in the team to face the United States at Gleneagles from September 13-15.

Anne Van Dam’s tied-sixth finish at the Renaissance Club secured her a Solheim Cup debut, with Carlota Ciganda, Caroline Hedwall, Charley Hull, Georgia Hall, Azahara Munoz, Caroline Masson and Anna Nordqvist completing the automatic qualifiers.

Matthew will name her four captain’s picks at 2pm on Monday, live on Sky Sports News and Sky Sports Golf, with a number of potential contenders to complete her line-up.

Bronte Law is relying on a captain’s pick after not playing enough events on the Ladies European Tour to qualify automatically, having claimed her first LPGA Tour victory earlier in the season.

Mel Reid, Jodi Ewart Shadoff and Meghan MacLaren and Scotland’s Carly Booth – the leading Brit in North Berwick this week – are some of the other possible British contenders, while vice-captain Suzann Pettersen is still hopeful of a pick despite having played just twice since November 2017.

German duo Esther Henseleit and Karolin Lampert, Norway’s Marianne Skarpnord and Sweden’s Pernilla Lindberg could also be considered, while Frances’ Celine Boutier is another option after finishing sixth at the Women’s British Open.
