Monday 26th September saw Essex senior ladies travel to Royal Mid Surrey to play in the Ten Counties tournament. 

The format for this tournament being a team of 4 with best 3 scores counting playing off of scratch.

Essex fielded a strong team for this event as the competing Counties will all play very strong low handicap players. Essex was represented by Jo Rumsey, Amanda Colgate- Herbert, Trish Wilson and Sue Lines Poulton. All four ladies played extremely well and represented the County with pride and honour. 

Amanda played exceptionally well entering a score of – 73 (CSS 74) this being the best score in the field of 40 ladies. Congratulations Amanda. Jo Rumsey 78, Trish Wilson 79 and Sue Lines-Poullton 84 all did their part to come in with a magnificent 230 leaving them in joint 1st place. With spirits high and awaiting for the rest of the scores it was soon to be announced that Essex had come 2nd on Count Back, this after the 4th team players score was taken into consideration, Kent the eventual winners by 1 shot. 

This is the best performance by an Essex Senior team in this tournament, so again well done ladies, we are all very proud of you. 



Girl international Lily May Humphreys staged a victory march today, winning the English U16 girls’ open championship by six shots at The Nottinghamshire.


Humphreys (image Leaderboard Photography) was nine-under par for the 72- holes, signing off today with rounds of two under 70 and 71.  She adds this to the English U14 title which she won last year.


Afterwards the 14-year-old from Channels in Essex revealed:  "I just really like winning,

once I think I can win I’m determined to do it and really disappointed If I don’t".


She also confessed to being slightly disappointed because she hadn’t achieved one of her championship goals of getting to double figures under par!  "I was three-over par for the last six holes.  I’d played really well before that but just had this mad half hour".


But I also wanted to finish all my rounds under par and I did that, so that’s good, said Humphreys who scored 70, 68, 70, 71.


The 72-hole championship developed into a title tussle between Humphreys and her England team-mate Amelia Williamson, who was the runner-up on three-under par.


Williamson, from Royal Cromer, was the first round leader with her opening  68. Humphreys then moved two shots ahead after the second round and didn’t let go. The players were still two shots apart after the third round, but in the final round Humphreys got off to a quick start, reaching the turn in four-under par while Williamson was two-over.


Williamson, 16, narrowed the gap on the back nine, but by then Humphreys was too far ahead to be caught.


Her verdict on the week: "I kept the ball in play most of the time and my holing out was good.  I took my chances out there to make a lot of birdies and I tried to keep as many bogeys as possible off my card.  I did a fairly good job of that".


Third place was taken by Anna Zanusso of Italy on level par.
