Seniors v Gloucestershire at Tewkesbury Park GC on Tuesday 3rd April 2018
After all the poor weather we've had recently, all the players appreciated the chance to get on and play golf in our first County match of the season, against Gloucestershire at Tewkesbury Park Golf Club.
As this is my first match as Senior County Captain, I have to say that I really enjoyed the experience. After meeting up for early refreshments, it was game on. 5 foursomes in the morning and 10 singles in the afternoon.
Congratulations go to Bill Thompson and Steve Green for being unbeaten on the day with a 2 hole win in the morning, and both securing 4&3 wins in the afternoon. Congratulations also to Gary Bristow who also had a 100% record on the day with 2&1 wins both morning and afternoon.
After 5 x foursomes, Worcestershire were 3 1/2 -1 1/2 points in front at lunch, and with a 5 1/2 - 4 1/2 win in the afternoon singles, Worcestershire were triumphant 9 points to 6 overall.
A huge thanks to Tewkesbury Park Golf Club for their hospitality. The ground staff at the club presented their course in a great condition especially after all of the poor weather recently. The food was outstanding and thanks goes to the catering and service staff.
A big thanks goes to all of the Gloucestershire County players for making this match very enjoyable.
Great first win of the season for the team.
Paul Newman Worcestershire Senior County Captain
