Durham County Veteran Ladies' Golf Association


 The last Richardson Trophy match of the year was played against Cheshire at Wilmslow golf club on Monday.   After a downpour on Saturday which closed the course, the practice round on Sunday was played on a heavy course with slowish greens.  Monday dawned fair and our team went into battle against a very strong team of Cheshire players who proved to be just too good to beat. With the notable exception of Matianne who got a half, Cheshire won all the matches.  A disappointing finale for the team - but there's always next year and well done to Jennifer and all the players for battling their way through what has been a difficult season.



 Both teams lined up and ready to go at Brancepeth for Durham's match against Cumbria. The score was 3 1/2 - 3 1/2

  Marianne, Claire and Carol won their matches with Lyn getting the half.  Sue, Sarah and Chris narrowly losing.


 A good win for Durham in the Richardson Trophy match at Tynemouth today.  A fighting half from 'Newbie' Chris Pullan and wins from Sue Musgrove, Lyn Davison, Sarah Hirst and Claire Miller combined to a score of 4 1/2 - 2 1/2. Well done to Jennifer and her team.


Both teamsBronze match with Northumberland

 The  team  of: Carole Zissler, Marion Robinson, Hazel Dawson, Irene Allcroft, Pat McMeekin, Liz Giles, Karen Crabtree, Sharon Dillon, Maureen Ewart, Pamela Nield, Ann Corbett and Christine Mair played in the Bronze match against Northumberland at Tyneside Golf Club on Friday, 9th July but did not have a happy day. They lost all six matches!  However, this did not dampen their enthusiasm or spoil their enjoyment of the course.  Better luck next time at Silloth.
