Warwickshire 22nd May
We lost the morning game 3-2 and the afternoon game 3-2. This was our first match against another County and was a good starting block for working out pairings and singles players. Wins came from Holly Waterfield and Eleanor Parkinson in the morning foursomes and Gemma Parkes -Walley with the only singles win. The afternoon saw wins from Ellie York and Kirsten Thorpe in the fours and Caz Parkes-Walley in the singles.
Worcestershire 30th May
The morning was foursome matches and we only took one point from a possible four and the afternoon was 8 singles matches which we only took 1.5 points out of 8 which was disappointing but four of the matches went down the 18th and the score didn’t reflect how tight the matches were. The mornings only point came from Gemma Parkes -Walley and Holly Waterfield who won 2up. A special mention for Ellie and Kirsten who were the top pairing and had a fantastic match eventually losing 4&2 with Worcestershire being 5 under par gross for 17 holes. The singles points came from Vicky Mayfield who had a half and Caz Parkes-Walley who had a 3&2 win. Overall result a win for Worcestershire 9.5 -2.5
Bedfordshire 5th June
This was a rearranged fixture and unfortunately Bedfordshire struggle to field a 1st team, so we decided to play some matches off scratch and some were off handicap. We played three foursome matches and two singles Eleanor Parkinson and Vicky Mayfield played Bedfordshire’s top pairing off scratch and won 3&1 with our girls being 2 under par gross. Karen Haynes and Francesca Brimm gave shots and had a great win of 7&5 and in the singles Caz Parkes Walley won 4&3. Overall result Leicestershire won 3-2.
