Ladies County Haskell (36 holes) (Report by Team Captain, Bev Allen)
Out match was played on Friday 4th June, against Ipswich, for those there in morning it was lovely weather , but afternoon deluge, and playing conditions were really difficult!
After a nervous start by our girls, they dug in and pulled back the 2 holes they had dropped early on in the morning and came in 1 up lunch time.
The afternoon caddies were certainly an asset for our girls, Mark & Mick as the heavens opened, and playing conditions were tough, but we managed to win the match on 13th, 6 & 5.
What a fantastic result against a formidable team, as all players were certainly not giving in!
My thanks go to all supporters, and as I was unable to attend for long on that day, the ladies captain and Joan Watson, for standing in for me, Georgia Parker (reserve) and lastly but by no means least, my fantastic team of Abbie Symonds and Alice Barlow, for their fabulous golf that day .

Ladies County Weston (Report by Team Captain, Hannah Clark)
In our first Weston game of the season, Bury St Edmunds played Ipswich at Home on a beautifully sunny Bank Holiday Sunday afternoon. The 5-player squad was Alice Barlow, Georgia Parker, Mariette Robbertse, Liz Bezance and Julie Byford. The first win of the day was a convincing one with Alice Barlow beating Vanessa Ball 5&3 on the 15th. Mariette held onto a 1-hole lead going down the 17th and beat Helen Bray 2&1. The winning point was won by Julie Byford on the 16th beating Annie Gallagher 4&2. Overall a great start to our 2021 Weston campaign.

Ladies County Stearn (Report by Team Captain Judy Hamshere)
Stearn prelim v The Suffolk (Away) Monday 7th June
Bury Ladies played so well in their six foursomes matches but unfortunately just lost by 3 ½ to 2 ½. So close yet so far.
All pairs worked very well together and we could not have asked for more enthusiasm and team spirit. We had two very capable reserves who kept themselves available all day.
The Suffolk course is very different from Bury and there was a definite home advantage.
Many thanks for the commitment of Jo Beresford and Wendy Flack, Josie Aves and Salome Smit, Clare Sykes and Amanda Watson. Reserves: Sue Russell and Bianca Theeruth.
Well played. Molly and Judy have thoroughly enjoyed organising the team and will miss them.
