Ladies Match Update

Ladies v Burton Thursday 18 August 2016
Our penultimate friendly game of the season was played against Burton at Longcliffe on a glorious day. The course was a joy to play and we had a convincing 3 to 1 win.  To cap it all off, we enjoyed a delicious lunch prior to the game and a very welcome tea with scones and cake on our return to the clubhouse.

Ladies Triella v Rothley and Birstall Friday 22 July 2016
Lady President Sue Pretty captained the team of Irene Moody, Joanne Barradell, Sylvia Armson, Alison Groom and Sue Ward on a very warm evening.  Our visitors really enjoyed the course and  the meal which followed.  Rothley went home with the cup this year.

Ladies v Rothley Thursday 30 June 2016
On a lovely day without rain and the course playing well the ladies from Rothley proved to be competitive as usual and excellent company.  However, Longcliffe Ladies played well and ran out 3 - 1 winners on the day.  A special mention goes to Margaret Norris, who was playing her first match, and partner Sylvia Armson for their fine win.

Ladies League Team v Parkhill Thursday 9 June 2016
The Ladies League Team played their second match at Longcliffe on a perfect summer evening.  Jayne Harris captained the home side which included Kate Hammond, Alison Groom, Joanne Barradell, Sylvia Armson and Joze Henderson.  They maintained their  good start to the campaign with another win, this time 2/1.  

Ladies v Willesley (away) Thursday 2 June 2016
The team unfortunately lost the friendly game at Willesley, 3/1.  However one of the games was decided on the final green so the contest was closer than the score suggests.  The course was much enjoyed and it was lovely to have new member, Angie Lane, in the squad.

Ladies League Team v The Leicestershire  Monday 23 May 2016
The Longcliffe team of Suzanne Pretty, Jose Henderson, Sue Black, Carol Smalley, Rachel Miller and Kate Hammond won 2 - 1.  All the games were competitive on a lovely day against very pleasant opposition.

Ladies v Seniors Monday 9 May 2016
What a glorious day we had to play the  annual Seniors v Ladies match?  Wall to wall sunshine for what is always a closely contested match.  Clashes with other opens and holidays reduced both squads, however Claire Walker and her team put up a very good fight but for a change the men proved victorious by 2½ to 1½.  Afterwards we all enjoyed afternoon tea in the clubhouse which made a pleasant change to the normal 2 course dinner.  We are all looking forward to our next meeting.

Ladies v The Leicestershire (away) Thursday 17 March  2016
Ladies' friendly matches are underway and our first game coincided with one of the first warmer (and drier) days of the year when we went to The Leicestershire.  The course was glorious and we enjoyed close matches.  Overall, the honours were shared 2 games each .........  a friendly way to start the season!

Ladies v Kirby Muxloe (away) Thursday 7 April 2016
In April we have visited Kirby Muxloe where we picked up a 2 and a half to 1 and a half win.

Ladies v Park Hill Monday 11 April 2016
 A very strong Park Hill team managed to leave with a decisive 4 - 0  victory over us after our game at Longcliffe.

 It has been lovely to have a mixture of experienced and newer members playing and enjoying the opportunity to visit other courses and a game that offers competition and experience.  Our next game is at the beginning of June.  Let's hope the sun is out by then.
