U16 v Warwickshire at Droitwich GC - Friday 22nd August 2014
The U16 team for the match against Warwickshire assembled at Droitwich Golf Club on Friday 22nd August on a cool but bright day. The team was a strong blend of regular U16 players and rising stars from the U14 squad. Pairings for the morning foursomes consisted of some regular team mates and the early scores were encouraging. The early promise turned into into an excellent lunch time position of 6-0.
After a fine lunch the afternoon singles started with the Warwickshire boys staging a solid come back in the early matches, and the Worcestershire team could only win 1 of the first 7 singles, leaving the overall result in some doubt until late in the afternoon. However the last 5 singles all went the way of Worcestershire meaning that the final result showed a convincing 12 v 6 win.
The team were pleased to have the support of Brian Peplow during the morning session, and it was good to note the support for all players provided by the Warwickshire Officials.
The County would like to thank Droitwich Golf Club for providing an excellent course for the match, with all the boys commenting on the excellent greens. The hospitality supplied by everyone at Droitwich was first class, and the boys from both sides were presented with complimentary course planners for which they were extremely grateful. The County would also like to thank the stand in caterers who provided an excellent breakfast and lunch service.
