2019 County Trials Match

The first trials match for 2019

The host venue, Gt Yarmouth & Caister, was in fantastic condition. What a delight, when we are in the depths of winter and not only being able to hold the first County Trials Match of the year but to do so in a decent weather window and on a course more than meeting the desired quality for such an event.
Twenty-four of the County’s finest set out to impress the County Selection Panel suitably lead by newly installed County 1st Team Captain Simon Clark and County 2nd Team Captain Shaun Larkins. The field was blessed with the introduction of some of the leading County Juniors selected by new Under 18 Squad Manager Sammy Martin in concert with Junior Secretary Norman Blanch.
The format of the day was Foursomes Matchplay with pairings initially selected by County Team Coach Michael Few to see how potential pairings for the year ahead would work and a chance to see what the players can do and to allow Michael the opportunity to reflect on the players application to the games coupled with their respective golfing skills. The day did not disappoint. All the players proved their worth with all the matches being hard fought with no quarter asked or given. A super day. A further trials match is scheduled for March 3rd by which time the player pairs will be more settled and readier for the season.
