1st Team Win v Staffs at Wharton Park 1.9.13
The following players won against Staffordshire on Sunday 1st September at Wharton Park G.C.
This was the final league match of the 2013 season and Worcestershire needed to win 9 1/2 - 5 1/2
Captain : Tony Hill
3-2 at lunchtime left a big challenge for the afternoon, needing 6 1/2 points from 10.
A great effort saw the team get 6 points, so 9 in total and administer the only loss on the Staffordshire Team who managed to win the League by the very narrowest of margins.
Worcestershire had 7 Match points and 39 Game Points and became Runners-Up to Staffordshire who had 7 Match Points and 39 1/2 Game Points.
With the margin so tight it is easy to think what might have been, but the most costly result was the home loss against Shropshire and Herefordshire.
What was good to see was the team spirit and if the enthusiasm carries forward to 2014 we have the advantage of 3 home matches and 2 away.
It could be jam tomorrow!
