LRLCGA Noticeboard : Midlands North County Match Week 2024 - DAY 1

Leicestershire & Rutland got off to a flying start on day one of County Week.

The first match this morning was against the home county Derbyshire. Gemma Parkes-Walley and Ellie York from Lutterworth GC headed out first in the foursomes, winning 6/5 giving the team huge momentum. Holly Waterfield and Tracy Bourne were the second foursomes pair out and they fought hard for a 2/1 victory. In the singles Jo Morris-Bourne had a tremendous 6/5 win. Karen Haynes and Caz Parkes-Walley both followed the winning pattern, finishing 1up on the 18th.  


In the afternoon we played Shropshire, who were also coming into the match from a 5-0 victory against Stafforshire. Once again Gemma Parkes-Walley and Ellie York led the way. All matches were very tight and at the 9th many games could have gone either way. Ellie and Gemma started the ball rolling with a 1up win, closely followed by Gabbie Crowfoot and Barbara Suffolk. who also won on the last when Gabbie held a crucial 6ft putt. All the singles players came up against some very tough competition. Jo Morris-Bourne and Holly Waterfield lost their matches which meant the match result all lay with Caz Parkes-Walley, who was 1up going down the last. Caz held her nerve and safely won the last winning 2up and securing another incredible win for the team.

What a great start to the week!
