2nd Team v Shropshire & Herfordshire at Ludlow GG on Sunday 2nd June 2019

Match Score Sheet

The venue for our 2nd league match of the season was at an excellent and well presented Ludlow GC. The weather conditions would be very testing with strong winds and occasional rain showers
Following on from our last match it was important to keep the momentum and compete away from home. I needn’t have worried. The guys arrived early for breakfast with a confidant mood and spirits were high.

The foursomes went Worcestershire’s way in the first three matches but unfortunately we lost the next two by narrow margins. A 2-3 lead at lunch.

The singles got off to different conditions than the morning with strong winds, heavy rain and a noticeable drop in temperature. Ben Woodward led us off, and carrying on from his morning foursomes win, gained a 2&1 victory; the next game recorded our only singles loss, but against anybody else maybe would’ve got a win, with Bobby Campbell being under par. Comfortable wins from Slater, Roberts, Cullen and Ager, and last hole wins from Bird, myself and Craig Richardson along with a halved game from Reeves capped a strong singles afternoon with a 3 1/2 - 11 1/2 away win.

From a captains point of view it is great to see the youngsters integrate so well into the team so early; experience and youth can only help us in the future.

Well done guys.
