On Sunday the Sussex junior girls welcomed Hampshire at Chichester Golf Centre for a friendly match. The format was singles matchplay (full difference of handicap) and Sussex had three rookies in their team, Sasha Gardiner, Lille-Beau Thorpe and Lily Margaroli. All but one of the matches were decided on the 16th or 17th holes, but Hampshire’s experience and lower handicaps proved too strong as they won the match 4½-2½. The Sussex girls played well and showed a great attitude, learning much from their experience. They did their County proud and never gave up.
Many thanks to Chichester Golf Centre for their hospitality and to their Lady Captain for her support throughout the day.
The team was:
Brandy Rook, Zhane Mayo and Rachel Gatcum – Cooden Beach
Rebecca Curd – Chichester
Sasha Gardiner – Holtye
Lille-Beau Thorpe – Cowdray Park
Lily Margaroli – Worthing
