2nd Team Match vs Derbyshire @ Chevin GC

Our final match was away against Derbyshire at Chevin Golf Club – a very challenging course winding up hill for 9 holes before descending back down. The morning foursomes saw a great win for Trish McGloin from The Shropshire and Helen Davies from Shrewsbury 3&1 but unfortunately this was our only point of the morning. We fared better in the afternoon singles with great wins for Ros Moor from Shifnal 4&3 and Julia Line from Llanymynech also 4&3 with Trish McGloin going all the way to the 18th for a battling half. With Derbyshire winning the singles 31/2 – 21/2 it meant an overall win for Derbyshire  51/2 – 31/2.

Junior Jessica Smith Trophy match 2019

12 of our juniors travelled to Halesowen Golf Club for the annual Jessica Smith Match against Hereford and Worcestershire.  A scratch team of Ellie Potts, Xrya Van der Merwe, Abby Birchall, Djalce Van der Merwe, Lizzy Rooney and Evie Anderson put up a valiant effort against a very strong team of opponents but suffered a defeat of 5-1.  The handicap team of Jess Warren; Seren Ramsey; Harriet Crump; Lottie Pryce; Jess Roberts and Lily Griffiths played well and with the final match down to the wire on the 18th, we came in with a well deserved 3-3 draw.   WELL DONE GIRLS. Thanks to Lesley Taylor for her support and expert caddying on a very tough course!!

2nd Team home match vs Derbyshire

2nd team vs Derbyshire @ Market Drayton

Our home match at Market Drayton saw some close battles in heat in excess of 30 degrees – not ideal for 36 holes! The morning foursomes saw Angela Hinton and Isla McDonald-O’Brien win the last hole to achieve a half, with Jan Sheargold and Helen Davies coming back from 3 down to also halve their match. Congratulations to Isla for winning her singles match but unfortunately this was our only success in the afternoon against a very strong Derbyshire side. Overall Shropshire lost 7-2 – well battled ladies in extreme weather conditions.
