The Norfolk ladies' second team opened their account in the 2010 inter-county league with a convincing 5�- 3� win at Thetford over tough opponents Hertfordshire.

Second team captain Sally Benton hailed her players as 'Braveherts' and said: 'It was a great win.'

Norfolk won an all-important lead when they took the morning foursomes 2-1 and they built on that to win the overall match, helped by some spectacular golf

Benton said: 'On the first hole in the morning the flag was peppered by the tee shots and that was the start of birdies and eagles for the home and away teams.

Her team was a blend of experience and new talent with Sharon Black of Dunston Hall making a notable debut appearance by winning both her points. Norfolk II's next match is against Suffolk at Rookery Park next Friday.
