2nd Team v Shropshire & Herefordshire - The Worcestershire GC Sunday 1st July 2018


The Worcestershire was the venue for our third league match against Shropshire and Herefordshire. The lads knew it was a must win game to put us back in contention for wining the league.

The morning foursomes started slow for us with two narrow defeats for matches one and two, however the remaining games went our way to put us up 3-2 at lunch.

The singles started strongly for Worcestershire as the returning Lee Richardson going out no.1 won 7&6, followed by wins for Shaun Roberts and Bobby Campbell giving us a great start. Further wins for Tom Howells and Luke Rodgers, along with the solid half by Duncan Macpherson sealed a 8.5 - 6.5 victory.

Credit to everyone involved as playing conditions were extremely difficult with temperatures reaching 30 degrees. However despite the recent heatwave credit must go to the green keeping team as the course was impeccably presented.

Also special thanks to Dave McDermott for his superb support.

Onwards to the Derbyshire fixture away on August 5th in another crucial game.

Steve Bird, County 2nd Team Captain
