On a very chilly and breezy Spring Sunday the Sussex juniors played Hampshire at Cowdray Golf yesterday.
Due to player availability problems for Hampshire there was an unusually high handicap range, however this gave the opportunity for some Development Squad players to represent the County for the first time which was a great learning experience for them. Every Sussex player was giving shots and in total 62 shots were given, which makes our 4-3 win even more commendable!
The average age of our team was just 12½, with Gudrun Nolan celebrating her 12th birthday on the day – Happy Birthday greetings from everybody! Special mention to Anna Wills who had the biggest winning margin and to Salysa Mason who had the most number of shots to give (13) and still had a very convincing win.
Many thanks to County Captain Sandra Holman for coming to support the girls and Megan Edwards who helped the younger members in their first match. Thank you to Cowdray Golf for their hospitality and beautiful golf course.
The team was:
- Fenella Buss – Captain (East Brighton)
- Ellen Nicholas (Ham Manor)
- Lille-Beau Thorpe (Cowdray Golf)
- Salysa Mason (Cottesmore)
- Gudrun Nolan (Hollingbury Park)
- Anna Wills (Crowborough Beacon)
- Rebecca Losh (Worthing)
