Second Team Match - Somerset v Devon
Sunday 26th May2019 at Weston Super Mare GC
Team Davina Xahn Abby Gray Carys Parker Jess Haines Frankie Dezis Ellen Reakes
The second team season got under way with a match against Devon. On a damp and windy morning our foursome’s pairings all won to give a halfway lead of 3-0. In the afternoon the golf was of a very high standard with Somerset winning the singles 4 ½ and 1 ½ giving an overall win of 7 ½ - 1 ½. Well done team, a fantastic result by a young and talented group of girls.
I was delighted to award second team colours to Abby and Carys – Congratulations girls.
My thanks to the team, caddies and supporters, a thoroughly enjoyable match played in great spirit.
Somerset v Cornwall Sunday
28th July at Launceston Golf Club
Team Abby Gray, Jess Haines, Frankie Dezis, Ellen Reakes, Kim Parker and Shane Bordier
The second team travelled down to Launceston Golf to play our second match of the season against Cornwall. We arrived on Saturday for our practice round, the course proved to be tricky with good ball placement required.
On the Sunday we arrived for the match knowing that whoever won would go on to contest the final in October. The morning foursomes were closely contested with Abby and Kim winning their game, with losses in the other two, we went into lunch trailing 1-2.
Abby led the team off in the singles, initially falling behind by 4 holes, some fabulous putting by Abby transformed the game and she went on to win on the 18th, further wins were recorded by Jess and Frankie. Two losses in the next games, left the team requiring a win or half in the final game. Shane being 4 down, fought back to level the match on the 17th, tension was mounting as the game went down the 18th, some terrific shots were played by Cath from Cornwall to win the game and the match for Cornwall 5 - 4.
I was delighted to award second team colours to Kim and Jess – Congratulations girls.
Well played team, thanks to the caddies and supporters - a fantastic match.
