An early start saw the Worcestershire Under 16s travel to Shirland Golf Club to face Derbyshire. It was the first league match of the season and after a great couple of results in the early friendlies it was our first away match.



The morning foursomes all looked to be going Derbyshire's way until the two Bewdley pairs managed to selvage two half points down eighteen. This was even more pleasing as Nathan Slater and Oliver Lowe were making their under 16 débuts.



At lunch Worcestershire were down in the score of the match but confident they could win eight and half of the remaining twelve points on offer. The singles started a lot better with the new knowledge of the hilly front nine. Worcestershire were up in ten of the twelve matches although they were all pretty close. At the end of the singles Worcestershire had picked up seven points which was a good effort but just not quite enough to turn the match around.



Thanks once again to Stuart Pritchard and Mark Ralphs for all your support on the day.



Worcestershire under 16's take on Gloucestershire in their next fixture on the 7th August at Burlish Park Golf Club.
