2nd Team Stovold Trophy Match v Surrey
at Effingham on 24th July
We arrived at Effingham on a cold and wet morning, not sure what we should be wearing on this ‘summers day!’
We were made very welcome by Surrey Vice Captain Lorna and the Effingham team, warming us up with coffee and bacon baps before our first round. Waterproofs were needed for a wet morning round and although we fought hard we went into lunch 2/1 down.
Everyone was in good spirits and determined to turn the result around in the afternoon. Some great golf was played giving some close matches and by the end of the afternoon the sun had come out and we were all stripping off the layers.
I am pleased to report that we won the afternoon session 3 ½ to 2 ½ which meant that the overall match was tied. A good result against a strong Surrey side.
