Sunday afternoon saw our Under 18 team record an excellent 17-3 win against Lancashire’s 2nds. The visitors were unfortunately short of a girl, which meant that they had to concede four matches but our Natalie Ho gained valuable experience by agreeing to “sub” for Lancs, thus enabling all 20 matches to be played. Northumberland’s team was:
Anna Railton, Libby Hall, Rachel Bogan, Sarah Bambrick, Arif Alam, George Moran, Jack Thorpe, Melvin Cherian & Matty Jerdan
We got off to a flying start with wins in all four mixed doubles and followed that up with wins in seven of the eight singles matches. Four of these opening dozen matches went to a third end but we took them all. The level doubles pairs were equally convincing with victories in six of the eight matches, giving Northumberland a very satisfying overall success.
