OPEN Semi Final – Northumberland 7.5 Middlesex 4.5. A fantastic result against a super strong team. Well done lads and good luck for the final against Lincolnshire on the 22nd.
U150 – Semi Final. Northumberland 5.5 Essex 6.5. A wonderful campaign comes to and end with the very last game to finish. No regrets, there have been some wonderful individual and collective efforts – well done all.
ECF100 – Northern Raiders 7.5 East Saxons 8.5. A regional competition, our guys lose their first match by the tightest of margins. Plenty still to play for!
Monday night (13/07) Gosforth had 8 players as we reopened for OTB. Registered and disinfected on arrival. Anybody venturing out re-disinfected on return. Masks mandated. Clocks, sets, table cleaned before use. All kit used put in same box for next week. Nobody took up the option of disposable gloves and nobody insisted their opponent wore them. We have a simple guideline for attending – if might help you by all means post firstname.lastname@example.org
OPEN – Northumberland 9 Essex 5
UNDER 1825 – Northumberland 10 Greater Manchester 7
Both teams top their groups with 2/2 and have a great chance of reaching the semi-finals. In addition we had 37 players in all reflecting great credit on ourselves and our Durham friends. Keep it up lads!!
