Worcestershire Seniors v Nottinghamshire - Cleobury Mortimer GC - Thursday 30th April 2015

Everyone arrived promptly bright eyed and bushy tailed, nervous tension filled the
room after all, we were due to play probably the best county in the midlands!
The morning greensomes were lost 4 matches to 2, two of which were lost 1 down,
winning scores were recorded by new boys Paul Newman ( Droitwich ) and Mark
Read ( The Worcestershire ) also Gordon Bailey ( WG&CC ) and Martin Mahon ( KN ).
The afternoon fourballs were a very close affair finishing three matches each which
on reflection shows how closely matched the teams were. My congratulations go to
new boy Mark Read and reigning seniors county champion Gordon ‘BAILES’ Bailey
for winning both of their matches scoring maximum points for the team.
