1st & 2nd Team Squad Day at Forest of Arden GC on Sunday 25th February 2018

Adam Norman (County Captain) and Steve Bird (2nd Team Captain) took a group of 28 players to the Forest of Arden GC on Sunday 25th February 2018 as part of their pre-season preparations. 

The day started with a bacon bap and coffee in the club house, followed by a short introduction by Adam. Adam also presented County Ties (for players who have represented the County at 1st Team level at least 10 times) to James Robinson, Tom Godfrey and Kieron Austin.

The format of the day was to be better ball medal over the famed Arden course. The exceptionally cold weather meant that the players could expect some frozen greens and bunkers. However, everyone started out in good spirits and the scoring was excellent, with 8 of the 14 pairs putting together a par score or better.

The overall winners were Steve Lane & Tom Godfrey with a 68, beating Adam Norman & James Robinson's 68 on the back 9. Other sub par rounds came from Russ Ager & Paul Reeves (70), Ben Woodward & Matt Vigurs (71), Tom Howells & Hadley Trenfield (71) and Mark Dixon & Duncan Macpherson (71).
