Essex Seniors V’s Cambridgeshire & Hertfordshire
Romford Golf Club, 13th April 2023


Romford had presented the course very well considering the recent poor weather conditions. Conditions on the day were tricky with winds and wet playing conditions.

Essex saw this triangular friendly match as an opportunity to play some new players to gauge a good understanding for a squad for the forthcoming season.


Simon Goy (Thorpe Hall) was one of the debutants who managed to secure 1 & ½ points on the day wining his match against Suffolk 2&1 whilst halving with Cambridgeshire. Unfortunately, Essex struggled in both matches and by only securing 8 wins in total, 4 in each match, the final score resulted in losses to Cambridgeshire 6½ vs 5½, whilst Suffolk managed to win 7 vs 5.


It was, however, a positive result as a few new players got a taste of county team golf, with the management better placed to enter the busy season with a larger squad of players to choose from should availability be an issue, which tends to be a reoccurring factor with modern day golfing schedules. 


The team play their first league match on the 15th of May at Calcot Park against BB&O.

We wish them well for the season.
