4 Wood Singles

Yesterday (4th June) saw the first round of the 4 wood singles take place at Forest Hall.
It was re-match time for last year's finalists K. Proctor (BD) and S Ferguson (BW), however this time it was S Ferguson who won 16-21, meaning an early exit for our 2017 champion. In the other games, we saw a good win for V Symons (WR) 21-6, unfortunately her fellow teammate R Robinson couldn't follow her lead with a 21-12 defeat off S Carter (HX). Our last game was the closest yet with M. Ross (G) narrowly losing out to D Blackham (SD) 21-18.
