As the tail end of hurrican Bertha hit the United Kingdom, Worcestershire, Shropshire and Herefordshire and Staffordshire prepared to play for The Shires Triangular Trophy. This trophy has been played for since 1998 and the team that amasses the most points from their two matches wins the trophy.

 

This year it was Worcestershires turn to host the event and Dudley Golf Club were kind enough to allow us the use of their course. The course was presented well and the elevations combined with the high winds and rain tested the boys to their maximum.

At lunch Worcestershire were in the strongest position with a four two lead over Staffordshire and three three all square with Shropshire and Herefordshire. However when there are twelve singles points up for grabs in the afternoon anything can happen.

Staffordshire rallied in the afternoon and took the first three points from Worcestershire. This opened the game right as they were on top in their match with S&H. Worcestershire beat S&H in the singles to secure that match before concentrating on an ever tightening match with Staffordshire. Nathan Slater made a fantastic birdie on the final hole to win the last point on the course but unfortunately it wasn't enough as Staffordshire beat Worcestershire by one point.

However what we didn't know at that point was that Nathan's crucial eighteenth hole winning putt had secured us a tie with Staffordshire for The Shire Trophy.

Congratulations to all the team for a brilliant effort in probably the windiest conditions they will ever play in. I'm sure all the boys will gain from this experience.

The under sixteen’s are next in action at Droitwich on the 22nd August again Warwickshire.
