Long Sutton ladies both support and play well for their County Senior Team. Somerset Senior Captain for 2019 Carole Paterson, Long Sutton, took her team for the first match of the year a South West Shield match at Trevose GC Cornwall. Our opposition, Cornwall are always tough to beat but we did it 4-3. Storms battered England but Trevose GC escape any rain as the teams played in bright sunshine and a moderate wind. Somerset had 5 links course players from Burnham & Berrow & Minehead in the team which helped. Sandra Ford Long Sutton, always a tough match player, had a solid win with her partner Judy Schroeder from Burnham. They did not know as they walked up the 18th fairway that their match would swing the result and their win did.
We won't mention the awful journey home in 3 hours of torrential rain.
