Mixed fortunes for Suffolk teams

Last weekend, Suffolk’s First Team and the Under 160s played in their respective national County Championships quarter-finals.   The First Team, current holders of the Minor Counties trophy, thrashed a weakened Worcestershire team 13 – 3 on Saturday – see the individual results here (click on ‘Minor Counties’ and then ‘Suffolk’).   Particularly noteworthy was the fact that not one of the 16 Suffolk players lost!

Then on Sunday the Under 160s suffered the cruellest fate, drawing their match against Essex, but losing on board count.   To view the individual results, use the same link (above) but click on ‘Under 160’ and then the ‘Essex’ result.

The First Team now have a home match against Hertfordshire, who beat Bedfordshire by the narrowest margin.   Herts are likely to have IM Simon Knott on top board.   The match will probably take place at the Bury St Edmunds club venue, on Sunday 14 June (to be confirmed).
