Captain’s Blog June 2019 (2)

On Monday 17thJune the Vet’s Silver team played our Richardson Trophy Match against Lancashire. Our team was:

Ruth Lindley (Durham Vets Champion 2019) 

Lyn Davison

Julia Elliot

Claire Miller

Marianne Moore

Sue Musgrove

Rosie Preston

Reserve Helen Morgan

Blackwell Grange once again did us proud with the course presented in great condition.  Our team played valiantly and half way through the matches it looked like we may be victorious. However, as the rounds were coming to a conclusion Lancashire just pipped us and the match ended 4 ½ to Lancashire and 2 ½ to Durham.  We can be proud of our team who never gave up in fact one or two of the games came down to the wire and were decided on the 18thgreen so the score does not really accurately reflect how close the match was.  The matches were all played in a friendly but keenly competitive spirit and even though it may not have been the result we wanted; I think everyone enjoyed the occasion.  I would like to thank everyone who sent messages of good luck and support and also to those who turned out to support the team. It is appreciated.  

I would like to say a big thank you to the team and wish then all the very best of luck in our next match which will be played at Huddersfield Golf Club against Yorkshire on 1st July.
