2nd Team v Gloucestershire @ Lansdown GC on Sunday 10th April 2016
The 2016 season starts with this traditional friendly match against Gloucestershire. Russ Ager (Captain) put together a strong side with a couple of new faces as compared to the 2015 side.
The course was in good condition and windy conditions made it a stern test for players from both sides. After the morning foursomes Worcestershire led 3 v 2. The afternoon singles were to be a very close affair with 8 of the 10 matches getting to the 17th or beyond. Unfortunately, Gloucestershire just edged the singles 4 v 6 to take the match 7 v 8.
Russ was pleased with the team's spirit - continuing a very important theme from last year - and wished to praise all of his players. Special congratulations go to Alex Fuell and Duncan McPherson who both had a 100% record on the day, and Steve Bird who was undefeated.
The whole team is looking forward to the first league match, which is set for Sunday 8th May, away to Derbyshire at Ashbourne Golf Club.
