Played at Standard B.C. with an encouraging entry of 17. The youngsters showed some early skill but in later rounds the more experienced started to come through. The final was the same as last year but with the result reversed.
Congratulations to the new County Champion, Liam Dennis and R/U George Chapman who will both represent North Midlands in the Junior All Britain in Derbyshire.
We Wish them both Good Luck!
