A blustery day made for difficult conditions at Kibworth Golf Club for our under 16 friendly fixture against Leicestershire.
Once again, this season, our boys faced a very strong side, with only one pairing showing an advantage to Worcester on handicap level, so again we started the day well and truly “ bunkered “
The morning Foursomes, didn’t go our way with the team going down 4.5 to 1.5, a fine win for Jake Kelly and Cameron Green 3&2, and a very good half for our Captain Nick Johnson and his partner James Drury.
At lunch I was asked by a parent if I thought we would fare any better in the singles, I thought long and hard but suggested that we just might, and didn’t we just........ the singles going to Worcestershire 7 rubbers to 5 and two of the five against us were lost on the 18 hole.
Our seven winners and very good winners at that were David Burton, Nick Johnson, James Drury, Nathan Dyke, Ben Finch, Jake Kelly for a double victory on the day and Joe Price. It would be wrong to single out any of the boys, but I must say how hard they all tried and how disappointed our non victorious boys were.
Kibworth is a beautiful parkland course, we were very warmly welcomed and the Leicestershire officials were a joy. Finally may I thank all the parents for getting the boys to the venue well on time and thank those who stayed for the match for their support.
