Under the Captaincy of Katie Dove Medows the Ladies Scratch Team consisting of Portia Abbott, Camila Davies, Viv Monument, Jan Scott and Katie D-M, took on Chippenham Ladies at Ogbourne Downs on Sunday 13 October and came away winning the County Scratch Knockout Cup.
Also playing at Ogbourne was Kingsdown’s Ladies Handicap Team in their final playing against West Wilts. Sadly, they were narrowly beaten on the 19th hole. The team consisted of: Sue Dix; Tania Prince; Shane Lyon; Denise Adlington and Lesley Hooper. All matches were tightly fought.
On a very wet and windy Sunday, a Big thank you must go to all the caddies and those who came up to support. It was greatly appreciated and wonderful to see all the friendly faces around the course. The caddies were: Portia’s mother, Hayley Abbott; Gary Monument; Robin Thornton; Carol Jones; Mike Prince; John Adlington; Paul Hooper and Trisha Crapnell. The supporters were: Beryl Larque; Fiona Farrow; David Palmer and David Phelps – as well as Portia’s father and dog.
Said Scratch Team Captain, Katie Dove Medows:
“I’d like to thank all the ladies who played for the team, for their commitment throughout the Season which has been fantastic – and to everyone who has supported us all year. The ladies at Kingsdown are renowned for their excellent team spirit – and it obviously won the day.”
In her speech, Katie explained that it had been a great honour to win the County Knockout Scratch Cup and that the team wanted to dedicate the win to Val McFarlane who recently passed away – and was an ongoing inspiration to both teams and all Kingsdown’s ladies.
