Seconds Team Match v Glamorganshire 18.04.19
Our second team came up against a strong Glamorganshire side who were out to reverse last year’s defeat by C&P. This year, Glamorganshire chose a different format – instead of 8 singles the match comprised of 3 morning foursomes and 6 afternoon singles.
The match was played for the most part in glorious sunshine if a little windy at times! Although the overall defeat 8-1 was not what we would have hoped for, Elin Jones ensured it was not a whitewash with her excellent win over Wendy Edwards. There were some close run matches with Rhian Walters and Jud Stevens narrowly losing the morning foursomes on the 18th green and Jud on the losing end of a closely fought singles match ending on 18th in the afternoon.
The greens were extremely fast and there was some great golf played with the girls battling hard with birdies and an eagle to keep the matches live.
It was great to see another C&P junior Marni playing composed and competent golf to take her Glamorganshire opponent to the 16th.
A huge thanks to the players, Elin Jones, Rhian Walters, Nicola Ward, Nicki Reeves, Janet Jones, Judith Stevens, Gloria Parsons and Marni Copeland for their time, commitment and excellent team spirit.
