1st Team friendly Hampshire vs Oxfordshire at Basingstoke GC – Sunday 6th June 2021

Sunday 6th June, a glorious sunny day at Basingstoke GC, was the setting for some of the Hampshire and Oxfordshire 1st Team squads to lock horns in a warm up match ahead of their respective County Match Weeks later this month.  Making their first appearances for the Hampshire 1st Team were Gemma Burgess and recently crowned County Champion, Hannah Hellyer.  The foursomes pairings of Aimee Paterson & Raffi Dyer and Louise Caplen & Gemma Burgess got Hampshire off to a good start, winning 1 up and 5&4 respectively.  Hannah Hellyer put in another impressive display winning her singles match 2&1 followed by County Vice Captain, Sarah Deacon who narrowly lost 2&1 to the Oxfordshire County Champion.  In the final match County President, Chris Quinn, showed all her experience to come back from 2 down with 2 to play to half her match.  A very valuable exercise for both sides, with overall match result Hampshire 3 ½ – Oxfordshire 1 ½.
