2nd Team v Warwickshire at Kidderminster GC on Sunday 4th June 2017
The 2nd match of the season would again prove to be another tough test against a strong Warwickshire side, but the team arrived confident and in high spirits.
The morning foursomes proved very tight with narrow victories for Warwickshire by 2&1 margins in matches 1 and 2. Match 3 provided our first point with Captain Steve Bird and debutant Joe Price coming from 3 down with 4 to play to win on the 18th, 1 up. The final match provided a half with again a great come back from Russ Ager and Tom Mee, being 2 down with 2 to play.
At lunch we stood 3 1/2 v 1 1/2 down.
The afternoon singles started with some tight matches again going the way of Warwickshire. But good wins from Russ Ager, Ben Myatt and Joe Price, and 2 halves from Ben Woodward and Callum Hutchinson brought the scores a little closer, but unfortunately the match ended in defeat.
Special thank you for Kidderminster for their hospitality, and excellent course for the day. Thanks also for continued support from Dave McDermott, Brian Morris and Will painter the lads very much appreciate it
Well done to Joe Price for settling into the side so well wining 2 points for the day
Spirits remain high, and we now look ahead to the Nottingham game at Redditch golf club on Sunday 2nd July.
Steve Bird, County 2nd Team Captain
