1st & 2nd Team Squad Day at Redditch GC on Sunday 22nd April 2018
On Sunday 22nd April the 2018 pre season finished with a 1st team vs 2nd team 18 hole foursomes match at Redditch GC.
After 2 successful squad days at The Forest of Arden GC and Moseley GC it was time to put new and old pairings into match practice.
The first match out was Richard Sadler and Anthony Hill against a strong home pair of Russ Ager and Paul Reeves. A very tight contest throughout ended in a 1up victory to Ager and Reeves.
The Second match was a new pairing of Steve Lane and Mark Dunkley for the 1sts against Tom Mee and Tom Howells. Some very good golf from Lane and Dunkley resulted in a 7&6 victory, promising signs for the new season.
Third match out was myself (Adam Norman) and James Robinson v Alex Fuell and Duncan Macphearson. The first few holes produced some early birdies from both sides but a couple of mistakes from Fuell and Macphearson on the back 9 let Norman and Robinson run out 3&2 winners.
Fourth match out saw 2nd team captain Steve Bird team up with Pete Robinson against another new pairing for the 1st team in Matt Vigurs and Ben Woodward. Again another strong performance from the new pairing of Vigurs and Woodward saw them win the match 5&4.
The last match out was Shaun Roberts and Hadley Trenfield v Bobby Campbell and James Berwick. A very tight affair resulted in a 1up victory to Roberts and Trenfield.
The final result was 4 - 1 to the 1st team and some very promising signs for the season ahead.
Thanks to Redditch GC and Moseley GC for hosting the squad days and thank you to everyone who played in each of the squad days.
Adam Norman, County Captain
