Ballingall Shield Match


Congratulations to the Ballingall Team who won the match against Northumberland 4-0.

Representing Durham were: Brittany Hill & Chris Pascall (Hartlepool); Lucy Ashworth & Emma Martin (Whickham); Cara Weddell (Barnard Castle) & Emily Baxter (Houghton-le-Spring); Shelley Hogg & Vanessa Taylor (Houghton-le-Spring).

Originally scheduled for September 29th, the match was postponed because of the weather. The re-scheduled match was played today, October 20th, at South Shields Golf Club. Once again the weather was atrocious - freezing cold, wet and very windy but the girls played on without complaint and in very good spirits. 

Because of the change of date, several members of the original team were unavailable but I was fortunate enough to find replacements, some representing the County for the first time, who rose to the challenge and won the Shield for Durham. 

Well done girls! You acquitted yourselves well against  formidable opposition and under very testing conditions. Durham is proud of you!
