Sunday morning saw the return fixture in this “friendly” rivalry with our neighbours south of the Tyne. This time Northumberland were at home at the TBC and the result was the same with a strong points win for Northumberland. Two rounds of singles, followed by three rounds of doubles led to a final score of 1127 points for Northumberland against 922 for Durham.
Northumberland’s team was led in fine style by captain, Anna Railton, supported by Abby Grogan, Rebecca Oakley, Amy Ward, Charlotte Graham, Lucy and James Dodd, Joshua Xu, Neil Shi, Jack and Ben Thorpe, Christian Sharp, Tim Bodani, Matthew Short, James Seabrook, Michael Laux and Finlay Smith. All of them contributed significantly to the overall victory.
Many thanks to Claire Lapworth and Andy Pollard for bringing their team to play. We look forward to going back to Belmont early next season.
