The Autumn series of Senior Friendly matches began on 5th September against Hampshire away at Hayling Island.
It was a lovely day, although a little breezy and all of the ladies enjoyed the fabulous course. There were some close matches, but Sussex came out on top with a 3-1 win – a great achievement on an away fixture. The team was Deborah James & Alison Vermes, Judith Dingle & Ann Carnegie, Alison Vans Agnew & Rosie Hickie and Barbara Parker & Kay Grindell.
The second match took place at Cowdray Park Golf Club on 12th September against Berkshire. Again the players were blessed with fabulous weather and a great course in tip top condition. Unfortunately, Berkshire could only field a team of 6, but they were very enthusiastic and the matches were competitively contested. Once again, Sussex had the upper hand winning the match 2-1.
The team were Linda Beasley & Iona McKean, Penny Gaunt & Sara Young, Chris Handson & Mary Bell.
Congratulations to all the players with a great start to the season. The remaining matches take place on the 11th and 14th October.
