The Sussex Girls had their first match outing of the season last week, with a friendly against Middlesex played at Pinner Hill. Under the Captaincy of Jelina Fernando (East Sussex National) four pairs played greensomes.
The other team members were Lily Margaroli, Megan Edwards and Penny Brown (Worthing) Katie Field (Bognor Regis) Fenella Buss (East Brighton) Zhane Mayo (Royal Eastbourne) and Holly Crompton (West Hove). A big thank you to our Junior Treasurer, Alan Edwards, who was Team Manager for the day.
Jelina’s match report:
Jelina and Lily, sadly we lost 7&6, but our opponents had an amazing hole in one on the 4th and they were -2 gross – hard to compete with that!
Penny and Katie won 6&4 – both playing really well.
Megan and Fenella fought to the last hole and had a very deserving win with the harshening conditions and nearly in the dark – well done girls!
Zhane and Holly (filled in for Brandy) lost 2&1 in a well fought match.
So, overall a friendly 2-2 draw, and a good start to our season.
Alan was great, we did the team warm up from Goodwood together and everyone was really focused and played well – considering the conditions.
I really enjoyed the opportunity to Captain the team, thank you everybody.
