The Sussex 1st team squad took on the Cooden Beach men on Sunday in their annual Spring fixture as part of our County Match Week preparations. It was a beautiful sunny day, everyone had great time and thoroughly enjoyed the fun (and keenly contested!) matches.
The morning foursomes pairings of
- Karen Sykes & Chelsea Masters
- Aileen Greenfield & Sophie Kennard
- Alice Barnes & Penny Brown
- Katherine Russell & Jelina Fernando
saw the ladies 3-1 up at lunch time, with all to play for in the afternoon. The singles matches were all very close, with three halved matches, but we’re pleased to report we came through the singles 5½-2½, closing the match out with a resounding 8½-3½ win for us. The lovely Cooden men have nicknamed the girls the ‘smiling assassins’!
Many thanks to Cooden Beach for their hospitality and a great match. Hannah Ralph’s support and the team’s spirit and dedication are going to give us a real edge this year!
