Redditch 'B' win the 2014 Droitwich Shield

Redditch 'B' win the 2014 Droitwich Shield

Played at Blackwell G.C. on 6.4.14

On a cool, breezy April day at Blackwell Golf Club, Redditch 'B' defeated  Worcester 'A'  to win the Droitwich Shield 3 - 0. The course was in fine condition considering all the recent rain and the players thoroughly enjoyed the varied pins positions and level of challenge Blackwell always presents. This was a particularly fine achievement by the Redditch 'B' team who were well supported by many club members and were rightly pleased to finish top of the tree after 32 teams entered this prestigious competition back in November 2013.

The match was refereed by Mr Colin Day. ( County Referee)

The County organiser of the whole event, Mr Dave McDermott ( pictured) was warmly congratulated by everyone for his excellent work throughout the whole winter period. This was a particularly difficult one to manage after all the various course closures and delays due to the unprecedented amount of rain.

Well done Dave
