Following the article a week ago about the First Team’s results, captain John Peters has provided the following brief report:
“Norfolk sit atop the EACU league table after combining to harvest wins against Hertfordshire and Suffolk. However Suffolk overcame Cambridgeshire in the morning fixture and look to be favourites to take the second qualification place for the knockout stages.
Steve Gregory was the only Suffolk player to score 2/2 whilst Edmund Player, Graham Moore, Silas Peck and Alan Watkins all contributed 1½/2.
On paper this wasn’t Suffolk’s strongest team but we fought with resolve and the win against Cambridgeshire could prove crucial to the final standings.
The final matches are to take place on Sunday 19 February when Suffolk will face Bedfordshire in the morning and Cambridgeshire in the afternoon. Should we beat Bedfordshire then Cambridgeshire will require at least a draw against Norfolk to set up a final match showdown in the afternoon. I’ll be sure to bring a calculator with me.
Thanks to everyone who played!”
