Opening fixtures in 2018 Midland League
The Shropshire and Herefordshire 1st and 2nd teams began their 2018 campaign with matches against Derbyshire last weekend. It was the first matches for new captains, Kris Jones and Nick Evans.
The 1st team were away at Cjhesterfield GC and got their campaign off to a winning start, recording a 9-6 victory. It was a great team effort with every member of the team contributing to the score. An away win is always a great result and should give the team a big confidence boost for their next match against last year's unbeaten champions Warwickshire.
The 2nd team were at Mile End and suffered a narrow 8-7 defeat. After an excellent performance in the morning Foursomes to open up a 3.5-1.5 lead, the team just couldn't get over the finishing line. It was a close match throughout with five of the afternoon singles matches going to the 18th hole. The team can't be too disappointed, it was a great effort and hopefully will spur them on to go one better in their next match against Warwickshire.
