Wednesday saw us take on the host team Staffordshire on the hottest day of the year, with players making the most of ice towels and cooling sprays to tackle the heat.
A good morning sessions saw us all square going into lunch: Gemma & Emma secured a great point on the last and Immy & Caz battled back from 4 down at the turn to gain a vital half point.
The singles saw our inexperienced front players, Briony & Lydia, take on two very strong Staffs players and to their credit took them to the 15th and 16th respectively.
Unfortunately the two following matched continued to go Staffordshires way with Gemma & Immy losing.
Emma battled to a great half and Caz finished out on 17th for a 2&1 win.
Although it was an overall loss 6-3 the girls showed great spirit under difficult playing conditions and we look forward to a slightly cooler day on Thursday against Derbyshire.
