Weston Super Mare Golf Club, Somerset

swfinalmatch

The weekend of the 24th/25th September saw Cornwall and Gloucestershire play for the SW Counties second team Championship at Weston Super Mare Golf Club, Somerset.

The Sunday of the match was blustery with early squally showers. The team players were Laura Andrew; Cath Hopkins; Gemma Marsland; Danielle Price; Olivia Trewhela; Emily Wilson.

Cornwall  were in good form and high spirits as they set off to play the morning foursomes. Unfortunately Gloucestershire took 2 of the morning points, but a formidable win from Cath Hopkins & Gemma Marsland put valuable holes won on the board.

The afternoon singles were closely contested, Danielle Price out first was down but kept fighting back and eventually secured a valuable half point. Comfortable wins for Laura Andrew, Cath Hopkins and Olivia Trewhela meant Cornwall won the afternoon singles.

So the match was all square at 4.5 to 4.5.

Eventually Cornwall were declared winners of the Divisional Shield on holes won during the day.

The final score being 18 holes Cornwall...9 holes to Gloucestershire.

We enjoyed supper at the Golf Club after which Gloucestershire captain Andra Kinght,  presented Cornwall Vice Captain Sue Roworth with the Divisional Shield.

Sue Roworth was delighted to award 2nd team colours to Danielle Price.

A great way to finish as County Vice.... thank you and very well done to a wonderful Cornwall 2nd team. Thanks to Sean Williams and Victoria Pawley for their invaluable support and caddie duties.

Finally Sue was presented with a gift from the players thanking her for her time and support over the past two years.
