It was an extremely tight and tense match against Toft GC(Lincs) ladies and as the anchor game Sarah kept getting reports of first good news, then bad, then good. Sarah was very pleased to be called in after playing the 15th as her team had won the required 3 matches!
So that’s 6 rounds completed and with over 200 clubs entered in the competition they are in the top 4.
