2nd Team V Nottinghamshire 16th August 2015
Firstly can I thank Lingdale Golf Club for hosting the event and providing great facilities, catering and weather !!!
This was always going to a tough match as the winning team would go through to the area finals.
After the morning foursomes it was a tied match 1 1/2 to 1 1/2 and all to play for in the afternoon.
The games were all very close swinging one way then the other, with both captains racing around the course trying to keep score.
But in the end it was Notts that took the match winning 5 1/2 to 3 1/2.
I mush thank Amy Taylor, Emily Anthony, Katie Underwood, Oivia Barrs, Rachel East, Clare Bailey and Lucy Garfield Fisher for playing great golf and fighting until the last putt, you are a credit to your county.
Congratulations to Amy Taylor who was awarded her county colours.
Also many thanks to our President Lynda who supported us through this and our previous matches.
May I wish Pam and her team good luck in the finals and look out for us next year!
Finally many many thanks to all the girls who played this year including the ones I had to call up the the very last minute to stand in.
It was close girls but hopefully closer next year.
2nd Team Report. Leicestershire v Lincolnshire @ Kibworth Golf Club
Firstly I must thank Kibworth for hosting the event. After all the rain we had over night I wasn't sure if the course would be open, but apart from a few puddles the green keepers had done a wonderful job and the club made us very welcome, thank you.
We started with the morning foursomes with Amy Taylor and Katie Underwood who had a 2 and 1 win, followed by Barbara Suffolk and Rachel East winning 6 and 5, bringing up the rear Suzanne Pretty and myself, alas losing 2 and 1, but going into the afternoon singles buoyed by the win.
The girls didn't let us down with great wins from Katie, Alice Watson, Rachel and Barbara, with Suzanne and myself being beaten by some very good Lincs players. Giving an overall win of 6 and 3.
Once again a great team effort, a wonderful win, now onwards next week for the return match at Blankney.
Thank you girls
2nd Team Report - Leicestershire v Nottinghamshire @ Rushcliffe on 19th July 2015.
We had an early start at Rushcliffe, arriving at 8.00 am for bacon butties and coffee in readiness for our foursome matches.
The team of Kate Frankham, Lucy Garfield Fisher, Barbara Suffolk, Suzanne Pretty, Olivia Barrs and Clare Bailey were fortified and ready for battle.
Alas apart from the half point brought in by Suzanne and Clare we were 21/2 to ½ down after the morning session. But we all still felt confident going into the singles.
Kate and Lucy had very tough games, they played very well but things didn’t go their way on the day
Suzanne and Clare came in with big wins and Barbara won on the 17th so it was all down to young Olivia, who battled on and won 2 and 1.
The overall result was a draw, which for us was a tremendous result against a very strong Notts side.
Well done girls and thank you, really proud of you.
