Warwickshire 2nd Team v Staffordshire 2nd Team - Bloxwich Golf Club - Sunday 5 August 2012 - With an unbeaten record so far this season following two halved away matches, our challenge for the Midland League title could disappear with a loss or put us in a strong position if we recorded our first away win with a couple of home games to finish the season - this match was pivotal !!
- 'Super Sunday'
1st v Staffordshire 5th August 2012 Harborne Golf Club - The Olympic Games are well under way and Great Britain are set to surpass their medal hoard achieved in Beijing 4 years ago. Golf is now an official Olympic sport and will feature in the next Olympics hosted by Brazil in 2016 and we could well see the likes of Luke Donald and Lee Westwood vying for the coverted gold medal. Closer to home however the Warwickshire 1st team are chasing their own gold medal dreams as most of you will know is the reward given to each team member for winning their respective County league title.

- Boys vs Staffs
On 8th July, the Boys, team travelled to Hawkesyard, formerly known as St Thomas' Priory, for a match with Staffordshire. With the exception of one brief shower the weather was sunny and windy. We were narrowly defeated by 8 matches to 7 in a most exciting game.
