Well done to all ten members of the County Squad who gelled well as a team. The Foursomes matches were particularly successful with some ver successful partnerships:- Nicole & Harriet won all 4 of their matches, Carole & Tash won their 3 matches ad Holly & Jess dropped only ½ point in their 3 matches. In the Singles Kelly was outstanding winning all 4 of her matches. Although slightly disappointed with the overall result, the week was a good experience for the young team who are surely destined to win the event in the not too distant future.
