1st Team v Staffs at Little Aston 3.8.14 - Report

1st Team v Staffordshire at Little Aston 

Sunday 3rd August 2014 

Match Report

It was a superb summer's day for this match which was being played on one of the finest courses in the Midlands. The course was in magnificent condition and everything was set up for a great day's golf.

The foursomes matches were closely fought and with the top two matches of James &Robinson and Carpenter and Vigurs winning convincingly it was disappointing that the team went into lunch being 3-2 down despite two matches finishing on the last green.

Six singles wins were needed for victory and with wins from Hill, James and Norman along with halved matches from Gough and McMahon it was just not enough. Despite four singles matches going to the last green it was the Staffordshire lads who added to their morning foursomes wins and took the match 9-6 overall.

The 1st Team now go into their last league game of the season against Warkwickshire at Hagley G.C. on 7th Sept with a good chance of taking 2nd position this season. 

The WUGC would like to thank Staffordshire Golf Union and Little Aston G.C. for their warm hospitality and excellent course preparation for this match.
