"My name is Elizabeth Gahan, I started playing bridge when I was nine years old in primary school. I did mini bridge for two years until moving on to play bridge with my local club West Midlands. I play bridge twice a week and enjoy every moment."
Liz first represented England in a junior international event at a young age, playing in the Czech Republic in November 2015 aged just 13. She then went on to play in the Women's U26 team in the Channel Trophy the following month, and was part of the Under 16 team that performed well at the World Youth Team Championships in 2016, finishing 8th and winning more than half of their matches in the round robin phase. She was part of the U16 team which finished 4th in the European Championships in 2017.
Liz was a member of the team which won the Harry Scully Trophy at the 2016 Young Bridge Challenge.
She lives in Solihull and is a regular participant in events in Warwickshire and at the West Midlands Bridge Club.
