HERTS SENIOR WOMEN'S TEAM PICTURED AT WELWYN GARDEN CITY VS HAMPSHIRE, FROM L TO R, LINDSAY MURRAY-GRAY (PLAYER/MANAGER), SHIELA MOSES, ALY NEDZA, BIRGITTE KARLE, MICHELLE GARDNER & KAREN ELLAM (NOT PICTURED SHEILA LANGLEY)
Report from Women's Seniors Manager Lindsay Murray-Gray
Another sunny day at Welwyn Garden City on Thursday 5th May saw the Senior Women take on Hampshire in our first game in the BBHH&O league. Despite being told to wrap themselves in cotton wool in advance, one player hurt her back that morning and the reserve caught Covid - not following team instructions especially well methinks!
We were one player down until literally the 11th hour but nonetheless we pushed hard and managed to suffer only a small defeat with Hampshire winning 4.5 to 2.5. Our super sub Sheila Langley drove like the wind from a previous appointment in Potters Bar to make it to the tee for the final match with only minutes to spare. As it was her first outing for Herts we rather craftily had told her it was only a friendly….. she found out something quite to the contrary on the 1st tee. She loved it and thankfully is still speaking to us.
Thanks to all for playing and to the team at Welwyn for looking after us all so well.
