What a great job I have as County Junior Organiser. You can go from seeing two of the girls playing in the semi-final of the County Championship – Lauren Purchase and Hermione Christey-Clover to watching the Academies being coached by Charlie Pilinger and Alice Davis at Sturminster Marshall.
There were six juniors playing in the County Championship, Lauren Purchase, Hermione Christey Clover, Ellen Mans, Lilli Horn, Meg Withnall and Molly Kington and all six made it through to the match play. All the girls played very well.
There were two groups of girls in the Academy and they and their parents are to be congratulated in making training after the girls had played in a round of the EZGO tour at Crane Valley in the morning.
It is very pleasing to see that the girls have improved since they started in October and 95% of the girls have handicaps and they are starting to reduce.
We are lucky to have such a great coaching squad led by Mike Dodd – with Fern Grimshaw helping with Dorset 1st squad and Alice Davis and Charlie Pilinger helping with the Academy squads. It is looking very good for the future.
Looking forward to seeing what the season brings – lots of competitions to enter, all the County Forms are on the website
