The Worcestershire boys had a tough day with many matches going all the way to the 18th green in the morning foursomes and afternoon singles. After being 3-2 down in the foursomes it was all to play for in the singles. I was very confident that the lads, who were in good spirits, could pull off a victory as the rain started to come down after lunch.
Match after match came to the final few holes and the Worcestershire lads edged the singles by one match ( 5 1/2 to 4 1/2 ) to secure a well deserved half. As usual, it was just a few putts which prevented us gaining the overall victory but this was a good start to the season and the confidence shown by the team bodes well for the future.
I'd like to say a big thank you to the team for their efforts against Warwickshire and we should take this result as a positive into our next match on 26th May against Notts at The Vale.
Thank you to Blackwell Golf Club for their warm hospitality and excellent course preparation in supporting this County fixture. As usual, nothing was too much trouble and we look forward to returning to the club in the near future. Thank you to the County Executive Officials who also supported this match throughout the day.
