Second Team Finals 2019
On Monday the 2nd September the County 2nd team went to Walsall Golf Club in Staffordshire to play Staffordshire in the Midlands North Final. The weather was set fair and the course was well established parkland. We were of course anticipating a tough contest, and we were not wrong!
The morning foursomes went well and we managed to get 2 out of the 3 points on offer – these were gained by Emma Anderson playing with Carol Houghton and Louise Wilding who played with Ava Waplington. Of course we were delighted to find ourselves in this position after the morning, but knew that Staffordshire would be all out for a win in the afternoon. The afternoon matches got off to a very good start with Carol Houghton delivering the first point shortly followed by Audrey MacMillan who also had a good win. Emma Anderson had a tough match and fought hard to the bitter end despite having to have a first aid break as she had played a shot whilst being knee deep in nettles! Her match went to all square going down the 18th and she achieved a creditable half. This left us 4 and a half points each with one match to finish.
