    It shouldn't have been that surprising that Suffolk lost to Cam's, we were missing many players due to playing on Saturday rather than the usual Sunday. Cams under the leadership of a new team captain had found new players and the result was the teams were very evenly matched (Cams avg rating 180 against Suffolk's 179). The only surprise was the margin of victory which was due to a couple of turns in games at the end of the playing session. Suffolk were without five out of seven players graded over 200. Even top county teams would find it difficult to cope in circumstances like this.
