Ist Match v. Yorkshire
As usual Yorkshire arrived with an extremely strong team. The boys battled well but unfortunately lost 0 – 5 although the two Simons both managed to gain one game each.

2nd Match v. Durham & Cleveland
This match turned out to be a real nail biter.
Richard won his match 3 – 1, Andrew lost in a tight five ender just losing in the fifth 9 – 11. Rubbers one all. Simon Grabham lost 1 – 3 and Stephen won his match 3 – 0. Rubbers two all. The match was to be decided on the last rubber. Simon Graham narrowly lost 2 -3 in a hard fought fifth game, each player having at least 5 match points – unfortunately Simon was pipped at the post 14 – 16.

All the boys played extremely well and represented their county in an exemplary fashion. Well done to all of them.
