The Suffolk team arrived all bright eyed and bushy tailed ready for the final day of competition against Cambs & Hunts. 

Once again, leading her team out with the first game of singles was Captain Amanda Norman.  Sadly, victory in this first game was not too be and Amanda lost to Miranda Brain.  Sharon Luckman was next up against Jade Guest and once again Suffolk lost.  However, in the final game of singles Vanessa Bell pulled of a tight victory over Marcella Tuttle, winning by one hole.

For the final session of foursomes it was wonderful to see the newer members of the squad take centre stage.  Georgia Parker and Jasmine Points proved to be formidable opponents for Laura Todd & Laura Tuttle and emerged victorious with a 2/1 win.  The final match saw Abbie Symonds and Sophie Kubitzek romp away with a scintillating victory over Lucy Pepper and Jackie Ewing winning 7/5.

The final score against Cambs & Hunts was a 3/ 2 win to Suffolk, a boost for morale at the end of  hard few days.

Whilst some of the results for Suffolk may have been disappointing the dedication and commitment shown by the squad can only be commended.  Once again, led superbly by Captain Amanda Norman and the ever-present Lils James (SCLGA President) the squad gave their all.   The past few days have proved to be a valuable experience and the prospects for the Suffolk team in the future can only be viewed positively.  Huge thanks must also be given to the caddies who braved the peculiarities of British weather and provided tremendous support to the players.

Losing only one match, Essex were the overall winners of the East Region County Match Days 2022.

Congratulations must also go the Harpenden Golf Club and Hertfordshire Golf Union for hosting such a prestigious event. Their organisation was second to none along with their welcome.

Looking forwards to next year’s event hosted by Norfolk.
