REPORT FROM LADIES SENIOR MANAGER ALY NEDZA:
The annual Fourball Betterball scratch match verses Middlesex Senior Ladies resulted in a 3-1 loss to Herts, which was to the delight of the Middx team.
This friendly match for Senior ladies of Handicaps of 8 and above saw a well-balanced competition between the counties in the stunning settings of Porters Park GC in Radlett.
With Kate Eckett having to withdraw due to injury, local Captain Jane Bellis kindly stepped in to play. The starting pair, Rita Davidson and Sue Knight played magnificently to win their match 7&5, being 2 under par gross after 9 holes. The other matches were much closer with the final group going to the 18th, where Jane and Noriko lost 1 down. The course was in fabulous condition with lush fairways and some tricky undulating greens. Although defeated, the team’s spirits were not dampened as there followed a lush Ploughman’s fit for a Queen!
Here’s looking forward to the return battle next year at Hendon GC.
Many thanks to the team Sue Knight, Rita Davidson, Helena Stewart, Sue Borella, Sandra Turner, Janet Biscoe, Jane Bellis and Noriko Miyakawa. A special thanks to Porters Park for allowing me to follow the team, in great company with Tracey-Lee Wingrove, my reserve.
Wishing Kate a speedy recovery and Herts a win on the return leg.
