An under 17 team travelled down to Thornaby yesterday for the annual team tournament, this year contested with teams from Cumbria, Cheshire, Lancashire, Yorkshire and a rather short-handed Durham. We scored a 9-1 win over Durham, followed by a good 6-4 win over Cumbria. Predictably, Yorkshire and Lancashire proved tougher opponents and we lost 2-8 and 1-9 respectively. The final match against Cheshire was much closer with some excellent matches but we lost 3-7. The highlight of the day was undoubtedly Philip’s demolition of his Cumbrian singles opponent after a near flawless display: brilliant! Overall we finished 4th and Lancashire were the winners.
The team was Annie Karn, Ellie Roberts, Megan Porter, Robyn Luckley, Sarah Wilson, Ben Leslie, Gyan Chadda, Jonathan Elsdon, Matthew Peart and Philip Pahatouridis.
