The weather has been uncharacteristically warm and sunny for the second day of the County Championships at Kirby Muxloe. There have been some very tight matches during the day and some excellent golf on display.
Sixteen players battled it out in the quarter-finals match play of both the County Championship and the Russell Trophy in the morning session. All of the matches were hard fought but in the end there were some convincing wins for some of the players.
Caz Parkes-Walley, Helen Lowe, Ellie York and Jo Morris came out on top in the Championship matches after the morning session and qualified for the semi- finals in the afternoon.
Tracy Bourne, Kirsten Thorpe, Cath Arter and Sally Jee won their matches in the morning to qualify for the semi-finals of the Russell Trophy in the afternoon.
Once again, the afternoon matches were hard fought with Caz Parkes-Walley and Ellie York qualifying for the 36-hole final tomorrow. The winning semi-finalists for the Russell Trophy are Cath Arter and Kirsten Thorpe.
The finals of both the Championship and the Russell Trophy are scheduled for tomorrow, the Championship will be competed over 36 holes, and the Russell Trophy over 18 holes.
The presentation of trophies to all of the winners will be made at close of play at around 5.00pm on Sunday.
Thank you to all supporters and friends who came out to support the players today.
