Lincolnshire v Leicestershire & Rutland 5th August
Today Lincolnshire faced their final match against Leicestershire & Rutland, the winner would play on finals day 30 August at Rothley Park. The foursomes saw 2 matches go all the way but Lincolnshire only won one and were lying 2-1 down after the morning play.
Still all to play for in the afternoon. Liz Haughton led from the front & put the first points on the board however only Courtney Martland & Anne Wright could follow up with more points. There were some very close matches but Lincolnshire unfortunately lost 5-4.
In such warm sticky conditions both teams played exceptionally well and we wish Leicestershire & Rutland all the very best in the final.
