Today saw the start of the 1st teams friendly season with the match against Warwickshire at The Leicestershire Golf Club and after a week of changeable weather the teams were treated to sunny and calm(ish) conditions.
The foursomes session was lead out by County Champion, Caz Parkes-Walley, and Jo Mayfield followed by 2016 County Champion, Ellie York, and Imogen Huxley, with County Captain, Gemma Parkes-Walley, and vice Captain, Cath Arter, last but not least.
The matches provided the opportunity to test some new pairings in the run up to inter-county week, however all 3 pairings were up against a strong and experienced Warwickshire team resulting in a 3-0 loss.
In the afternoon singles there was a change in fortune for Caz, Jo, Immy and Gem who won their matches 4&3, 2&1, 6&5, and 1up respectively. Alas, this wasnt quite enough to overturn the mornings session and the result went Warwickshires way 5-4.
The squad has a weekend off before teaming up again on Sunday 4th at Kirby Muxloe Golf Club against Worcestershire & Hereford.
