In the first match of the season Ely City hosted the County 2nd team fixture against Essex 2nd team. On a very hot sunny day the three foursomes matches got underway. Essex fielded a very strong young team and they won two of the foursomes matches, but Captain Cindy McIntyre (Bourn) and Lindie Tapping (Gogs) played some excellent golf to win their match
5 & 4, so that Essex took a 2-1 lead into the afternoon.
In the singles Essex won the top two matches but Chloe Ashman (Ely City) put in an excellent performance to win her singles 4 & 3 and Cindy McIntyre played a Captain’s role in winning her match 5 & 4 to reduce the arrears. However Essex responded by winning the final two matches to give Essex victory by 6-3.
