Boys Under 17 Second Half Report

February 1, 2010 No Comments »

Northumbria were unable to capitalise on the  fact that Merseyside had brought only 4 players.  Barney Wareing was the only player to notch up a victory at 4th string, with the top 3 strings losing to the stronger Merseyside players without taking a game between them.  Match was therefore lost 3-2, but 6 valuable points were gained.

Merseyside then went on the trounce Nottinghamshire 4-1, with Nottinghamshire’s only points coming from the walkover at 5th string.

Northumbria then took a very positive attitude into the final match against Nottinghamshire, with only pride to play for, as Merseyside were already group winners with 2 victories.  Mark Dinsley played well to take first points at 3rd string, with a 3-0 victory.  Meanwhile Barney Wareing had fought back from 2-0 down to level at 2-2 before narrowly losing the 9/11 in the fifth, but picking up 2 valuable points at 4th string.  Richard Ridgway, called into the team at the last minute, showed determination and concentration to win 3-0 at 5th string, whilst Harry Carr at no 1 was unable to contain his stronger opponent.  This left Elliott Park to play the decider at 2nd string and he proved himself to be up to the challenge, with a 3-1 victory.  Match result, a 3-2 victory to Northumbria.

This placed Northumbria in 2nd place behind Merseyside in the overall standings.
