Another county week has come and gone, and whilst of course there is disappointment that Staffs didn’t win, there are still a huge amount of positives to take away from Hinckley.


Initially when England Golf announced that they were moving the English Seniors Championship from May to the same time as our county week, I was worried about how much that would deplete our team. However, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise as it gave others a chance to shine. 18 year old Katie Symonds from Aston Wood and 17 year old Izzy Speck from Whittington made outstanding debuts. Playing with the experienced Julia Gaunt in the foursomes, Izzy had a half in her first match against Shropshire, followed by a 7&5 win over Debyshire, whilst Katie debuted with a 9&7 victory over Notts followed by 6&4 over Lincs, and then finished with a 5&4 win over Leics partnered by Bev Chattaway. How exciting is the future with these two on board?!


The ever reliable partnership of Rachel Bishop and Jenny Rhodes also continued, extending their unbeaten run to another 5 matches (2 wins and 3 halves) - even more remarkable considering they were dormie 2 and 3 down in successive games, but they always show such indominatable spirit.

So that just left the singles, which proved to be incredibly hard fought. There are no finer singles players in Staffordshire than +4 handicapper Emily Brennan, Morgan Thomas off +2, and Bronwyn Davies off scratch. They all conributed points, and I could not have asked any more of them in terms of commitment, effort and outstanding golf. So many of their matches went down to the wire and could have gone either way. Just a lipped out putt here, or an outrageously long putt holed by the oppostiton made the difference. There is absolutely nothing to choose between the top 4 counties, and as president Ann Rafferty succinctly put it, “They could all play each other ten times, and we would win five times, and they would win five times.”

We had players whose wedges broke, and whose drivers broke, but the one thing that never broke was the team spirit, which was just outstanding. I couldn’t be more proud of the way each and every member of the team conducted themselves and performed under extreme pressure. And believe me, the new system where the first team to win a mere 3 points wins is extremely pressurised!

So, in summary, yes, we would all have dearly loved to have been on our way to county finals now, but  despite the disappointment, it was still a fantastic week that everyone enjoyed from start to finish. I have absolutely no doubt that this team will go on to achieve great things in the future, and I can’t wait to be there to congratulate them when they do.

This year's county week will be at Hinckley GC in Leics from 28th - 30th 

June. As ever, we welcome support and warmly invite you to come and 
watch some excellent golf being played. The schedule is:

Mon 28th   am Staffs v Shropshire        pm Staffs v Nottinghamshire

Tues 29th   am Staffs v Derbyshire        pm Staffs v Lincolnshire

Weds 30th am Staffs v Leicestershire

It is always great to see yellow shirts / jumpers on the sidelines 
cheering the team on, so hope to see you there.
