Yesterday the team of Lily Farr, Lois Williamson, Ellie and Liz Haughton, Alex Smith and Harriet Wilson put up a tremendous fight against Notts at Stanton - on - the - Wolds to win the Midlands North Championship.

Lois and Ellie are proving rather tough for any opposition and won their foursomes 7/6.  Harriet and Liz had a hard match but won on the 18th.  We went into the afternoon 2-1 up and needing 3 points to secure the win overall.

Both Alex and Lily got their revenge in the afternoon giving us 2 points. Ellie managed a half.  Everyone played so well but in the end the heat got to us and the result 4.5 - 4.5. Notts had more games than us so have won the Midlands North Region.  We wish them all the best for the final on August 15th at Stanton to be the Midlands Winners.

Thank you to everyone who has played in the second team this year, we have had a lot of fun and looking forward to next year already, revenge will be sweet!
