2nd Team Final 2017 v Derbyshire

teamfinal17bAfter completion of our matches against Lincolnshire and Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire qualified for the Regional Final. This year it was played at Worfield Golf Club, Shropshire, on Thursday 24th August, where we played Derbyshire, who qualified after their matches against Staffordshire and Shropshire. There was an autumnal feel in the air when we arrived in the morning for our foursomes, although thankfully it was dry.

Our girls played some very good golf but the greens proved to be very slick and we were 2 - 1 down after the morning matches. Our team rallied in the singles and we saw some exciting golf, with Vicki Johnson securing an early win to level the scores. Jacey Peacock had the toughest match of the afternoon against a very experienced Derbyshire player but, despite battling hard, Derbyshire won the match regaining the lead. All four remaining games went to the 18th, Louise Wilding losing 1 down despite some great golf, Kristina earned a well fought half, with wins for Wendy Kerry and Emma Anderson.

We went down fighting with the result ending as 4½ each, only missing out on countback of games won, proving again that golf is a game of fine margins! Congratulations to Derbyshire on winning the trophy.


The second team season is now at an end and I would like to thank everyone who has played during the year for their fantastic performance in reaching the final for a third year running: Laura Abbott, Emma Anderson, Jo Hopkins, Carol Houghton, Lorraine Howd, Wendy Kerry, Vicki Johnson, Kristina Lazarevic, Audrey Macmillan, Leonie Muir, Jacey Peacock and Louise Wilding.

Thank you to everyone who has come along to support us in the matches. I have really enjoyed my year as Second Team Captain and I am proud of the team and their achievements.
