League Match vs Bucks at Castle Royle GC
19th June 2022
We started well with three fantastic wins in the morning foursomes. Bella Kent & Yvonne Craven winning on the 17th, Jane Brakenbury & Chloe Walkington winning on the 18th, Emily Shaw & Jules Tarr making short work of their match, winning 7&5.
The afternoon started with disappointment for Bucks with one of their ladies limping off and conceding her match to Bella, before a ball was struck. Emily was well down in her match but fought back brilliantly, sadly being pipped for the match on the 18th green. Donna was well beaten by a very steady player. Jane fought hard for her match which was halved. Jules lost two down to a talented youngster, who drove the ball a county mile! Lastly Yvonne came in with another point – beating another youngster 3&1.
Overall, a fantastic result – a win to Berkshire 5.5 to 3.5
League Match vs Oxon at Henley GC
Thu 28 July, we headed to Henley for our last league match of 2022.
Bella Kent, Holly Lund, Charlie Keenen, Debbie Ranwell, Anne Smith, Yvonne Craven and myself
We had a super morning, with three Foursomes wins under our belt – heading out in the afternoon for the six singles, knowing that two wins would likely see us playing for the first/second pay offs in the league finals on 11 August at Badgemore Park.
Bella kept up he super play, with a win. Holly had a tough match, possibly one match too many after a busy week which saw her win the Nett prize at the East Berkshire Junior Stag on the Wednesday and came in with a loss. A loss for Ann and Debbie meant we were still looking for a single win.
County Captain Charlie, and Yvonne came in with the wins needed, so we won the match 6-3
Super effort from the team. Henley were super host, and we thank them for that.
2nd Team Captain
