This was our first away match of the season against Nottinghamshire at Radcliffe on Trent Golf course and as a team we knew that all three counties were in contention for winning the league. However, we needed a win to keep us in the running.
Once again the weather was beautiful and the course was in excellent condition.

Cath Arter (Rothley) & Alison Horak (Ullesthorpe) won 2&1, Karen Bonser (Willesley) & Rachel East (Cosby) won 3&2 and Olivia Barrs & Barbara Sulfolk (Lingdale) lost.
The afternoon singles matches got off to a fantastic start with the first two matches both finishing on the 15th hole, Cather Arter and Karen Bonser both won 4&3 to increase Leicestershire & Rutlands lead to 4-1.
News of the two wins and the score rippled through the remaining matches and raised both the spirits and the performances of the remaining players.
