Herts Ladies O40 Team – Inter County – Premier League – 13/10/13
Their first match was against the hosts and Laura Taylor and Julie Ann Pegram were first on court. Great performances by both players got Herts of to a good start, Laura winning 3-0 and Julie Ann winning 3-1. Next on court were Isobel Smith and Lesley Garner. Isobel lost 3-1 but Lesley (who has only set foot on a court a handful of times over the last year!) played an amazing game and won her match 3-1! Maureen Morrison played another strong player at two and lost 3-0. Herts beat Berkshire 3-2.
The next match was against Surrey and followed straight on from the first match, which can be quite tough. Again Laura had a great game but this time lost 3-2 and Julie Ann lost 3-1. Isobel managed to get a game of very experienced Isabelle Tweedle but lost 3-1 and Lesley couldn’t repeat her morning glory and lost 3-1. Maureen, although having a tight game lost 3-0. Unfortunately a 5-0 loss to Surrey. Berkshire went on to beat Surrey in the afternoon match 3-2 so unfortunately Herts came third on points but hopefully this can be rectified at the next weekend.
Special thanks to Elke Rubsam who came to support the team, hopefully she will be fighting fit for the next match.
On to the next batch of matches will be played in January.
