Junior Results & Reports

2018-19 Season

U18 ICT 2019 & U21 ECC 2019

The pinnacle of the County junior season events are the U18 ICT in Nottingham & the U21 ECC in York. This year we took two fantastic teams who both did fabulous.

ICT team (seeded 9/24) came 10th out of the 32 Counties who entered. The team battled very well and almost got into the top 8 team slots. The teams goal was to come top 12 and therefore 10th is great! Next year we can see medals being hunted…

The ECC team (seeded 8/12) came 6th out of the 16 Counties who entered. The team were only 1 end away from a potential 2nd place. Next year we will try again for sure…

Thanks to all the helpers as these events are difficult to run properly and you all did great. Also a thanks to our sponsor “KBSA” who’s financial backing allowed for some great kit to be purchased!

Inter-Regional event 2019

The Inter-Regional has been running for many years, yet each and every time there are great games, great atmosphere and fantastic efforts made by all. A special thanks to the fab volunteers who make this event a joy for all the players!

Super well done to both teams.
