EG Women’s County Finals - Day 2
Women’s County Finals Day 2
Morning Foursomes - Groundhog Day losing 3 - 0
Unfortunately the team couldn’t repeat the fantastic result of yesterday.
They were playing a very determined and talented Buckinghamshire team, who wanted a win after a defeat on their first day. The rough , wind at times and putting greens not to our liking didn’t help. There were good wins for one of the oldest members of the team (Helen) and the youngest, Ellise in the afternoon singles. Final result - loss 7 - 2.
Report from EG
Buckinghamshire collected their first win of the Finals when they beat Lincolnshire 7-2.
On the previous day, Lincolnshire recovered from losing the foursomes 3-0 to beat Surrey 5-4 but there was no similar reprieve this time. They were again whitewashed in the morning and then also lost the first two singles 5 & 4 when first Indian Clyburn went down to Alice Kozlowsky and then Billie-Jo Smith was beaten by Thalia Kirby. Ellise Rymer did pull a point back with a 3 & 2 victory over Grace Rigby-Walden but Rosie Bee Kim and Olivia Lee extended Buckinghamshire’s advantage before Helen McDougall earned a consolation point for Lincolnshire with a 6&5 win over Susanna Mitterer.
Tomorrow’s match is against defending champions Gloucestershire.

Lincolnshire battled back to secure a 5-4 victory against Surrey on the first day of the Women’s County Finals at Delamere Forest Golf Club, Cheshire.
Despite being 3-0 down going after the morning foursomes, Lincolnshire were able to secure their first point of the week after winning five out of six available points in the afternoon’s single matches. The stand-out performance came from Meg Illingworth who won 5&4 over Gabby Shacklady.
Lincolnshire’s India Clyburn, Billie-Jo Smith and Ellise Rymer all won by one whilst the game was secured by Helen McDougal on the 17th after beating Jessica Adams of Surrey by two.
Lincolnshire Team Captain, Helen Dawson, said the team proved what they could do: “They believe in themselves, they believe in each other and this afternoon they proved they can do it. You have to be confident, we all think we’re going to win, we all hope we’re going to win, we’ll all do our best to win.
She added: “[after the morning foursomes] I think we thought we had nothing to lose, just go for it and don’t play it too safe.”
