Durham County Veteran Ladies' Golf Association

DURHAM V NORTHUMBERLAND

The Richardson Trophy match between Durham and Northumberland was played today at Blackwell Grange. The team was:

Ruth Lindley

Lyn Davison

Julia Elliott

Claire Miller

Marianne Moore

Helen Morgan

Rosie Preston

Reserve: Sarah Hirst

We started strongly with both Ruth Lindley and Marianne Moore winning their matches but unfortunately, the Northumberland team overwhelmed us and the end result was Northumbria 5 Durham 2.  The team tried their hardest and there was nothing between the long games of both Counties. Northumberland were tighter with their chipping and putting which tipped the balance in their favour.  We all just got off the course and sat down for dinner when a storm arrived so at least we didn’t get wet as well! 

I’d like to say a big thank you to all our team players and caddies for all their sterling efforts. 

Our next and final match will be played at Ulverston on 24thJuly when we will line up again to proudly represent Durham and see some great golf and sportsmanship displayed.
