2nd Team v Nottinghamshire at Redditch GC on Sunday 2nd July 2017
Our 3rd league game of the season saw us come up against a strong Nottinghamshire side at Redditch Golf Club. Our side included a couple of new faces, with Colin Colraine (Kings Norton GC) and Dean Reece-Davis (Redditch GC) making their debuts for the side.
After two very tough games to start the season and two defeats, it was vital we came away with a win.
The morning foursomes all proved very close, and finished with both sides evenly matched at 2.5 each. There were good wins for Bird and Price, Myatt and Richardson, and a solid half from Richardson and Ager.
With all to play for in the singles Ben Woodward got us off to a great start with a 3&2 win, followed by Lee Richardson who got a creditable half. Further wins for Steve Bird 5&4, Craig Richardson 5&4, Joe Price 6&4, Ben Myatt after being 5 down coming back to win 1 up on the final hole, and a great half when Duncan McPherson eagled the 18th putting his second shot too a few feet. Giving us a 8.5 v 6.5 win.
The team spirit again was first class, and the will to win the lads showed was exceptional, and something I am very proud of.
Special thanks to Dave McDermott and Will Painter for their support throughout the day - again really appreciated by the lads.
Final thanks go to everyone at Redditch Golf Club, as we were looked after superbly, and the course was in excellent condition
Steve Bird, County 2nd Team Captain
