junior team vs Surrey 2014On a glorious afternoon in leafy Leatherhead the Sussex Girls took on the might of Surrey on their home course this weekend. The Sussex team was made up of five rookies to give them experience for Junior County Match Week at Goodwood in August and two other girls who will hopefully gain selection in the future.  The Sussex team were giving their opponents 25 shots on an interesting course which required careful course management.

The team achieved a fantastic draw 3½-3½ showing some good form, with nearly all of the team scoring at least one birdie in their round.  Hopefully this will build confidence for their forthcoming JCMW. The girls are in action again on the 6th August with their annual challenge match against the County Boys at Haywards Heath.

The team pictured is Fenella Buss, Captain for the day (East Brighton) Chloe Burdon (Nevill) Rachel Gatcum and Zhane Mayo (Cooden Beach) Brandy Rook (Royal Eastbourne) Megan Edwards and Lily Margaroli (Worthing).
