In the first match of the season the team had a home fixture against Norfolk 2nd at Bourn Golf Club. Last year Captain Cindy McIntyre (Bourn) introduced some of the County’s promising juniors and continued this theme with a debut appearance for Ella Mason (Ely). In the morning foursomes Cambs and Hunts got off to a promising start with Rosemary Walker (Girton) and Lucy Mills-Cripps (Ramsey) putting in a fine performance to secure a 5 and 4 victory. Norfolk levelled the score when Cindy McIntyre and Karen Cox (Brampton Park), who was also making her debut, just losing out 3 & 2. Playing the two juniors together was an inspired pairing with Emily Smith (Royston) and Ella Mason completing an excellent 3 & 2 victory to give Cambs and Hunts a 2-1 lead.
In the afternoon singles Cambs and Hunts were unable to maintain the momentum and Lucy Mills-Cripps was the only player to secure a singles victory. The other five matches were all evenly contested but Norfolk just maintained their form to run out winners in all these matches to record a match victory by 6-3.
