County week has begun in hot, sunny conditions as we faced Shropshire in the first match of the week.
The first foursomes got under way at 8:15am as Gemma Parkes & Emma Watson lead the team out, followed by Briony Allen & Lydia Sharpe before Captain Caz & Immy Huxley got under way in match 3.
The first match had a tight game against Shropshires number 1 pair, losing 2&1. Briony & Lydia brought in the first point of the week with a fine 4&2 win, unfortunately we couldn't take the advantage into the afternoon as the final pair brought in a half point.
So honours even into the singles with the temperature rising by the minute, making it a hot & sticky afternoon ahead.
County champion, Gemma, went out top followed by Briony. Both losing 5&4 and 7&5 respectively. In 3rd spot Emma got her singles point 3&1. Immy lost 3&2 before Anne gained a well battled half in match 5 and Caz won match 6 6&4.
Unfortunately, this resulted in an overall match result of 5-4 to Shropshire. However we look forward to taking on Nottinghamshire in match 2 tomorrow morning.
