The Senior Team played at Aldenham Golf Club v Hertfordshire on the 11th July, on a glorious sunny day, but on an unknown course, Essex lost 5/2. Julie Finegan (Hainault Forest) and Trish Wilson (Colchester) came out on top. The rest of the team were Jo Rumsey and Amanda Colgate-Herbert (Rochford Hundred), Sophie Walters (Woodford), Nicky Iles (Crondon Park), and Mandy Rix (Colchester).
A few days later on the 15th July, on another beautiful day at Colchester Golf Club, we were hosts to Sussex, who put out a very strong team. Sussex ran away with the match 5/1, although 2 were only lost on the 18th.(they fielded a team of 5, so we did get one match!). The team were Jo Rumsey and Amanda Colgate-Herbert (Rochford Hundred), Julie Finegan (Hainalt Forest), Trish Wilson and Mandy Rix reserve (Colchester), Julie Race (Braintree) and Kate Gadsby (Chigwell).
Thanks go to Colchester for hosting the match. Our next game is at Burhill v Surrey on the 22nd August, and v Norfolk at Chigwell on the 19th September.
