Autumnal weather swept over Sweetwoods Park on Saturday as the second annual match of Sussex Girls v Ladies 2nd team took place. However, spirits were never dampened in this very closely fought match. Eagles and birdies abounded throughout the day from both sides and the ladies soon realised they had a real challenge on their hands! The girls swept into an early lead, but the ladies never gave up and fought back hard with three of the matches finally decided on the 18th and one on the 17th! The final result was another success for the girls as they won 2.5-1.5 – the winning team pictured above.
Lizzie Price & Lily Margaroli beat Sally Brown & Alison Vermes 1 up
Fenella Buss & Megan Edwards halved with Karen Ashcroft & Rosie Chisholm-Hill
Brandy Rook & Zhane Mayo beat Tracy Poulsom & Lauren Hawkins 2&1
Chloe Burdon & Anya Olsen lost to Deborah James & Sophie Kennard 1 down.
Very many thanks to Sweetwoods Park for hosting this annual event again, to Sue Todd for her support, and finally to all of the players for a really close match and happy event (followed by tea!)
