County Girls v Bedfordshire

Martha Pieterse will captain a Northamptonshire Girls experimental team for a pre-season friendly with Bedfordshire at Colmworth GC on Sunday.

The Overstone Park member will join club-mate Abbie Thompson and Tamsin Munro, Olivia Barby (Wellingborough), Emily Goodall (Kettering), Faith Atkinson (Collingtree) and two other girls for the match over 12 holes.

A more experienced County Girls team has been selected to play Warwickshire in the opening League match of the season on May 6th at Kenilworth GC.

County Girls champion Ellie Darnell (Wellingborough) and County Girls captain Hattie Billson (Northants County) will both be involved in the 12-player line-up.

Baylie Pyke (Overstone) and Ashleigh Critchley (Kettering) will not be involved as they play for the England under-16 squad on the same day, but both return for the match against Hereford & Worcestershire at Northampton GC as four others make their 2018 debuts.
