1ST TEAM BEGIN LEAGUE SEASON WITH A DRAW
It was great to see such a strong squad in action with 3 of Nottinghamshire's finest representing - Ross Overton, Martin Foulkes and Jamie Farnsworth. There were debuts from Sam Allen, Lewis Parker, Mark Porter and Anthony Wain too.
Worcestershire brought an experienced squad and this was reflected in some closely fought matches across both the foursomes and singles matches. 3 of the 5 foursomes matches and 5 of the 10 singles matches went to the last hole. Mark Porter and Anthony Wain secured an impressive 6&5 victory in the morning foursomes but Nottinghamshire were behind in the foursomes series of games. Alex Hull and Mike White secured a valuable half point in the last of the foursomes matches from being 3 down with 5 holes to play to level the foursomes matches 2.5 each. It was a similar story in the singles. Martin Foulkes ensured an early point at the top of the order and Ross Overton birdied the last to secure a half point in his match. There were hard fought wins for Adam Dorricott, Anthony Wain and Sam Allen in the middle order but Nottinghamshire were behind in the last few singles matches. An up and down from 90 yards on 17 and a downhill 4 foot putt on 18 from Lewis Parker secured the half point needed to ensure a halved match.
It is a point on the board and a steady start to this years league campaign. Next match is against Derbyshire at Stanton on the Wolds on June 2nd.
