Wednesday 21st July 2021 - Leicestershire & Rutland v Nottinghamshire at Beeston Fields Golf Club
Our final match of the season was the return against Nottinghamshire which took place at Beeston Fields Golf Club. We were hoping to continue our form from the previous week, and finish the season on a high. The hot and sunny weather was still with us, so it was going to be another long and challenging day. The course was in great condition, andall the matches were again played in an excellent spirit.
The morning foursomes began with Barbara Suffolk and Lisa Porter, who was making her County debut, leading the way, followed by Clare Bailey and Katie Underwood, with Fiona Sharman and Alison Smith bringing up the rear. Barbara and Lisa finished all square, Clare and Katie won 2&1, and Fionaand Alison also won 2&1. This gave us a 2.5-0.5 lead at the lunchtime break.
The afternoon singles matches set out full of confidence. With wins for Barbara Suffolk, Katie Underwood, Lisa Porter and Fiona Sharman, a half from Clare Bailey, and a loss from Alison Smith, we achieved a satisfying double over Nottinghamshire.
It was great to see 12 year old Millie Marsh making her debut for Nottinghamshire – a star in the making!
The overall result was a 7-2 win for Leicestershire.
