Last Saturday (30th June) Surrey's U16 squad travelled to Batchworth Park in Hertfordshire for our annual friendly against a Herts team that is always strong.
The 10 a side singles match was played in the blazing sum we are currently enjoying with the course running hard and fast. With their Club Championship being played the following day, the course and greens were in excellent condition.
After 9 holes all of the match were very close however by the end of 18, Surrey came out narrow winners 5.5 - 4.5 with new boy Riccardo Fantinelli sinking a birdie putt on the 18th green to seal a very good victory. The other Surrey winners on the day were Ben Kelly,Ben Brew,Harley Yates, and Rhys Williams
Captain Joe Wood made the speech after some nice food put on by Hertfordshire before we all left for Surrey victorious!
