They had a tall order first up playing a very strong Yorkshire side going down 5-0 losing 3-0 at all strings. The next match was less tough but still tough against Durham & Cleveland , they still went down 4-1 with Liam Gutcher winning at number one string 3-0. The full squad was Liam Gutcher, Jonny Robson, Peter Brierley(all Northern), Richard McCallister(Tynemouth), Matthew Hardy(Northern) and Steven Robson (Westoe).

The Boys U15 also had a hard time when they travelled down to Manchester. The team was Richard Shellam, Christian Beck(both Jesmond), Ben Gallagher( Tynemouth), Adam Brown( Newbiggin), Stuart Proctor (Westoe) and Dean Follin(Tynemouth). They played Lancashire, Cumbria and Durham & Cleveland only managing to win 1 string against Durham & Cleveland going down 4-1.
