U18 TEAM BEAT WARWICKSHIRE IN SEASON OPENING FRIENDLY MATCH
Play began at 9.30am with 6 foursome’s matches, the course was wet in places but played well, the greens were excellent. Warwickshire led the morning foursomes 4-.2
The afternoon single matches didn’t start until 1.30pm and I expressed my concern, I pointed out the last match would be on the tee at 2.50pm and matches 8/9/10/11/12 may not have enough daylight to complete, however Warwickshire official’s felt it would be Ok. It was agreed when players felt it was too dark to continue the score at that point would decide the match.
Warwickshire insisted we played until 6.50pm with 2 matches finishing at the 13th and one match at the 14th, 2 in favour of Warwickshire, one match to Nottinghamshire. Personally I felt it was too dark and had to use my phone torch to write down the scores!!
Despite all this Nottinghamshire won their singles 7½ - 4½
Well done to the lads, the final score was Nott’s 9½ - Warwickshire 8½
