The Droitwich Shield
Congratulations to our A team who have reached the finals of The Droitwich Shield to be played against Moseley GC on neutral ground at Blackwell GC. The first round saw WG&CC A gain revenge after last year with a home win over Stourbridge A
An away win in round 2 against Gaudet-Luce ‘A’, followed by a resounding victory at home in the quarter final against Droitwich ‘A’ saw us progress into the semi final with an away draw to Wharton Park ‘A’.
tHE First match out was our strongest pair of Lee Richardson and Shaun Roberts who secured our first point with a 3&2 win, second out was the pairing of Ben Woodward and young Aaron Bryan, this match was to go all the way to the 18th green where upon Aaron sunk a tricky downhill 4 foot putt to win 1 up. This gave the team the victory and with Duncan Macpherson and Dave Hunt out in match three, finishing all square, WG&CC ‘A’ won 1/2 - 2 1/2.
We now venture into the final on 28th April at Blackwell 10:00am tee off (spectators and supporters welcome) against a very strong Moseley ‘A’ team.
With 5 of our 6 being county golfers we can go into this final with a great deal of confidence in overcoming the odds against our opponents.
