The Suffolk First Team is due to play against Cambridgeshire and Norfolk on Sunday this week. The match against Cambridgeshire is important, as it will most probably decide the EACU Championship. Cambs are currently top, with 10 points from six matches, whilst Suffolk are second, with 8 points from five matches.
On 7 February, Suffolk played Cambridgeshire in the morning, losing for the first time this season by the score of 5½-10½. The only Suffolk player to record a win was top board Alan Merry. In the afternoon, Suffolk were due to play Hertfordshire, but they were unable to field a team, so the Suffolk players all went home early!
There is some debate amongst the EACU county captains as to what should be done. It seems that some ‘double-headers’ may need to be played.
