1st Team v Gloucestershire @ Stinchcombe Hill GC on Sunday 9th April 2017
Stinchcome Hill GC was the venue for my first match as County Captain, against a strong Gloucestershire side.
A few notable absentees provided the chance for some new blood to taste 1st Team action for the first time, with debuts for Nathan Slater, Joe Price and Simon O'Dell, all of whom put up good performances!
The morning foursomes did not go according to plan as we were 5-0 down going into the singles. Thankfully we did manage to avoid a whitewash, with wins from myself and Mark Dixon, and a fine half from Simon O'Dell, who had been 5 down through 8 holes.
After the 2 squad days and this friendly match I am looking forward to getting the league matches underway and we have a tough start at home to Staffordshire on May 7th at Wharton Park. Overall, I feel that with the squad we have we will certainly be competing again for the Midland League title.
Adam Norman, County Captain
