Day 5 Leicestershire & Rutland v Shropshire

LRLCGA Noticeboard : Day 5 Leicestershire & Rutland v Shropshire

On the final day of this years county week we took on Shropshire.

An unfortunate turn of events meant that Shropshire could not field a full team, however the team was submitted as normal to see who would be playing the morning foursomes.

Things didn't quite go as planned and it was disappointing that Helen & Caz won their game by default giving them the morning off. Jen & Gemma lost 3&2 and Imy & Beth also lost 3&2. Seeing us finish 2-1 down after the morning foursomes.


We played the afternoon singles hoping to get round before the storm.

Unfortunately Beth who really wanted a game won her match by default.

Helen was out 2nd but unfortunately lost 2&1

Caz had a fantastic win of 5&3

Emily made her first team debut in the 3rd match against Caileigh Smith and had a brilliant win 3&2

I had a tough tousle but lost 4&2 to a previous under 15 England Girls champion. 

Imy won the last match by default & spent the afternoon caddying for me. 


The final score of the day was 5-4 win for Leicesteshire & Rutland, this meant we had done all we could and would have to rely on other results to go our way in our battle for 2nd place.

Staffordshire finished the week unbeaten, winning their final match against Derbyshire. Notts had a good win against Lincolnshire 6-3.

This meant L&R finished in 3rd place, losing on countback by 3 match points to Notts. 

2016 County week is now over! It was a fantastic week, a brilliant result improving on last year by 2 places and really putting ourselves in contention.

A huge thank you to all the supporters who travelled to Holme Hall, It was great to have you cheering us on! 

Thanks to all the team who gave up their week and played their hearts out, even with achy legs and tiredness creeping in. Thanks for all the fun and laughter throughout the week, L&R Foxes really did do us proud!!
