A busy week for the ‘old girls’ with their 2nd match of the week, this time a home game against Middlesex hosted by Ifield in the glorious sunshine.
It seemed that a tough match was in store when non-paying captain Sara Whittaker saw the team through the 7th hole where the matches weren’t looking too good. We were down in the majority of matches, but the girls dug deep and started to turn things around on the back nine.
Aileen Greenfield lost on the 18th against well known Lulu Housman. Paula Carver had a convincing win 6 & 4. Clariissa Bushell overcame her opponent and her trolley winning on the 18th! Katherine Russell won 4 & 3 despite not having her wedges for 9 holes! Teresa Ward, after a slow start, got the better of her opponent 5 & 4 and home player Sally Brown won after going up the 18th all square.
A solid win for Sussex 5 – 1 in their second match of a series of 4. They now look forward to taking on Essex at Colchester on Monday 15th July.
