The 23-year-old from Norwich beat four-times finalist Alison Merrien from Guernsey on the last end of the final tie-break at Potters Leisure Resort in Hopton on Sea to win the world ladies match-play title.

Field made a stunning start to the match, opening an 8-0 lead before Merrien, who won the title in 2011, came back to win six successive ends to reduce the margin to one shot. But Field produced a stunning shot with the last wood of the opening set to take it 11-7. And though she lost the second set 10-8 a full house four towards the end helped steady her nerves for the tie-break, which she won when Merrien fell short with her final wood on the third and deciding end.
