The Suffolk First Team took on Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire today at Newmarket. Despite fielding a weakened team, Suffolk won both matches, 9 – 7 and 13 – 3 respectively.
Five players won both games: Ian Wallis, Mike Cook, Tim Lunn, Richard Lamont and David Brown (1 by default). Mike Cook has now won all four games this season for the county.
These results confirm Suffolk’s position at the head of the league table, which can be viewed here. Bedfordshire did Suffolk a huge favour by beating Norfolk 9½-6½. It now seems likely that the two matches against Cambridgeshire on 7 February and 13 March will be crucial in deciding the EACU Championship.
