Defeat for IInd Team

With 4 players making a debut to Senior County matches the Cambs team knew this would be a tough match.  The match started with Jason Lai & Ben Carter (debut) putting up some resistance to their opponents in the Men's singles but conceding in 2 ends. The Second Ladies singles also went to Suffolk in 2 ends with Carolyn Key (debut) being introduced to senior singles. Liz Salmon put up a fight in the first ladies' singles but sadly lost in 3 ends.

The Men's Doubles started well giving Cambs some hope with Sam Scharf and Chris Lim beating the Suffolk 1st pair in 3 ends. Sadly this was not to continue as they went on to be beaten by the second pair . Sam Pickup and Ben Carter as a debut scratch pair fought well but failed to trouble their opponents.

The ladies doubles was balanced with Liz Salmon and Sandra Ashcroft bring home 2 rubbers, both in 3 ends, but Tracey Bichener and Carolyn Key were disappointed being beaten in 2 ends.

Going into the Mixed Cambs needed to bring all 3 in to get a point of Suffolk. It started well with Liz Salmon and Sam Scharf winning comfortably in 2 ends, but Suffolk ruled the day as scratch pairs Sandra Ashcroft and Ben Carter, Tracey Bichener and Sam Pickup sadly lost in 2 ends each. Match result 11-4 to Suffolk.
