The first game of the 2nd Team against Hampshire was played at lovely Meon Valley near Southampton. The team was: Leanne Caffyn, Holly Crompton, Daisy Kane, Tracy Poulsom, Alison Vermes and Sara Whittaker.
Daisy Kane and Tracy Poulsom came in with a good win in the morning foursomes, with the other two pairs losing although Leanne Caffyn and Holly Compton put up a good fight.
All to play for in the afternoon singles. Holly and Leanne both came 2nd! Tracy took her partner to the 18th despite using borrowed wedges and finished 1 up. Daisy’s short game gave her a 2&1 victory. Alison had a tough ask playing Aileen Simpson, although felt at home saying ‘good shot Aileen’. With a loss here it was down to Sara Whittaker to try and find another point. After a monster putt on the 17th to go all square on the 18th green and Sussex had another win and a 4th point.
A 5 – 4 loss away from home is most encouraging and we look forward to taking on Kent at Piltdown on Friday 19th July.
