Our last match of the season. The match was held at Brancepeth on yet another hot and sultry day and played over the long course which was beautifully prepared thanks to the hard work of the greenkeepers, despite the challenging conditions.
Once again we were plagued with injuries resulting in losing Karen, Julia and Sue from the team, but we had excellent reserves who stepped in. The match was played in great spirit; the Cumbrians are always good fun and a pleasure to entertain. Unfortunately for Durham, Cumbria got the better of us on the course and we lost the match 2/5. There were some good battles out there.
The team was:- Janet Burdis, Lyn Davison, Susan Handley, Sarah Hirst, Pat McIntosh, Marianne Moore, Rosie Preston.
I would like to give our good wishes to Karen and Jeanette who are playing in the Jamboree at Hexham, also to Ruth Lindley and Chris Pascal who are President and Captain of the North. I may see you there supporting. Wear something pale blue as that is the team colour of the north.
