- The 2013 Warwickshire Amateur - Preview
Pictured is Sam Dodds, the Defending Champion, during on the rare times he was in trouble when winning last year - that is after a disaster of a front nine which was then followed by 'Dynamo' type magic for his next. Sam is again favourite but for many of our best players, 2013 form hasn't yet shown itself.

- 'Frosty Start'
March was to be a warm up to the season for the Warwickshire squads with two friendlies scheduled on consecutive weekends at the end of March. Blizzard conditions saw the demise of both 1st and 2nd team friendlies scheduled for the 24th March but a slow thaw through the week meant it was game on for the second friendly against Leicestershire and Rutland Golf Union.
