Division 2B

Team: Ian Blackburn, Adam Watkinson, James Tomlinson & Andrew Devaney

Overall we had mostly close encounters with the other 4 counties in the group.  The same line-up was fielded for all the matches which meant this year we were able to fulfil our fixtures.  We played well against Avon beating them 3-2, with James producing a battling performance to win his singles, which ultimately proved the decisive match. However, we lost narrowly against both Oxfordshire and Derbyshire 3-2  in competitive encounters, which could have gone either way.  The last match against Staffordshire, who were group winners, was a disappointing 5-0 lost although there was not much in it between the sides; more a case of not taking good opportunities on the day.  Everyone in the team put in some good performances over the course of the matches and hopefully we will have something to build upon for next year in Division 2.
