Silver Shield

The Silver Shield Final was played on 25th September at Warley Park.  At the half-way stage, it was very close with Thorndon up in 2 matches, and Chelmsford leading in 3 matches.  At the turn, the Chelmsford Silver Shield Captain, Kelly Martin, was 3 down to Harriet Lynch, but then fought back levelling the match on the 17th, and winning the match on the 20th.  This match secured the 3 wins needed by Chelmsford with the other two matches still on the course standing at all-square.  Many congratulations to Chelmsford, and commiserations to Thorndon Park.  Thanks go to Warley Park for all their hospitality (and to all their ball-spotters), and to our referees.
