Friendly Match v Mapperley 2017
Thursday 13th April saw the staging of the annual friendly fixture against Mapperley Ladies. The team, consisting of acting Captain Charlie Inger, Ankita Anand, Lucy Holbrough, Madeleine Smith, Safi Durant and Rebecca Oates, ran out 3-0 victors although the matches were much closer than the score lines suggest.
This match was one of the first many of the girls had played for the County, although any nerves were quickly forgotten following six fine drives on the first hole. The better ball format resulted in some great shots being played by both sides in a match played in good spirits. The girls all said how helpful the support, course management tips and matchplay advice given to them by Mapperley’s ladies was at this stage of their County careers.
Once again thanks go to the Mapperley Ladies for hosting this match and allowing the girls to gain valuable matchplay experience.
