Today we faced the winners of the Regional County week 2016, Staffordshire.
In the morning Foursomes matches Captain Gemma and Suzanne fought hard but lost 8/7 followed by Caz and Beth who turned in a marvellous win 7/5! In a very tight last match we were delighted to see Imogen and Ellie secure a well deserved win finishing 1 up! And so we went into the afternoon singles 2/1 up with 6 points to play for.
The first two matches were extremely hard fought but ended in losses for Caz And Emily 3/2 and 2/1 respectively. The last four matches were incredibly tight and the Foxes had to dig in hard. Imy finished 1 up and Ellie secured a brilliant 4/3 win - we now held an overall lead 4/3 with Gemma and Beth still fighting hard. Gemma handed us a 5/3 lead finishing 2up - and all eyes were now on Beth who turned a 1 down match after 15 holes into a magnificent 1 up result after 18 holes!
What a good first day - we finished 6/3 to put us in the leading position at the end of day one. The whole team - whether playing or caddying - put in a magnificent amount of energy and commitment and deserve their winning result! Day 2 here we come to battle the odds with a strong Lincolnshire side. Well done Foxes!! ????????
