1st Team v Shropshire & Herefordshire - Moseley GC Sunday 10th May 2015
Moseley Golf Club, home club of the Worcestershire County Captain, Richard Sadler, was to be the venue for the first league match of the season. Shropshire and Herefordshire were the visitors and both teams enjoyed an excellent breakfast and were keen for the golf to commence. Richard had pulled together a strong team and was looking for a good performance in the morning foursomes. He was to be rewarded with some strong results, with Worcestershire building up a healthy 4 1/2 v 1/2 lead at lunch. The team headed out for the afternoon singles in good spirits, and were keen to build quickly on their strong position. Solid wins from the top three players (Oliver Farrell, Richard Sadler and Chris Nugent) moved Worcestershire into a healthy lead, and further points from Steve Lane, Anthony Hill and Tom Godfrey meant that the singles were won 6 v 4, and the overall match was won by 10 1/2 v 4 1/2.
Richard was keen to thank Moseley GC for hosting the day, and noted the strong support from the WUGC Executive with Mark Ralphs, Peter Adams, Tony Jowle, Denis Hayes, and new President Will Painter and his wife Claire all appearing throughout the day. Richard was also delighted to have Ian Warner, Moseley GC Captain, lending his support to his team.
