2nd Team v Warwickshire at Olton GC on Sunday 3rd July 2016 - REPORT
Russ Ager and his team arrived at Olton GC for their match against Warwickshire in good spirits. There was a good welcome for Oliver Walker, the 2015 County Champion, who was playing his first 2nd Team County Match.
The weather was good, but the morning foursomes were to prove troublesome. The first two games went down the 18th, but both went the way of Warwickshire. Russ Ager (Captain) and his partner Duncan Macpherson won the 3rd game, but this was to be the only point of the morning - thus lunchtime score of 1 v 4. This left the team with a huge mountain to climb in the afternoon singles. Despite fine wins for Tom Mee and James Berwick, and halves for Matt Vigurs and Craig Richardson, the overall result was 4 v 11.
Russ praised his team for their efforts against an incredibly strong Warwickshire 2nd team - with 3 plus handicappers from the home club! Russ wanted to mention the continued support of Dave McDermott, who has been an ever present for the past 2 years.
The next match for the 2nd team is away against Nottinghamshire at Stanton on the Wold, on Sunday the August.
