Boys 18U County Cup Report


The boys 18u County Cup team faced Somerset, Gloucestershire and Shropshire down in Taunton.

Team captains Zef and Andy took the team of Samik, Tiger, Jasper, Max, Ben, Jack, Thomas and Indy to compete on Friday, Saturday and Sunday the 4th - 6th March.

The first day was tough for the boys going down 0-9 against Somerset. The home team fielding a strong tea that had too much for Nottinghamshire.

On the second day it was another loss against Gloucestershire, going down 3-6. Notts sneaked 2-1 ahead in this tie with wins for Max and Indy but the next 4 rubbers went the way of Gloucs, with Tiger and Max gaining another consolation rubber in the singles.

With the team morale quite low, the boys dug exceptionally deep to show resilience against Shropshire on day 3 in the battle to stay in Division 5. Wins for Indy, Jack, Max and Jasper in the singles made it 4-2 to Notts before Indy and Jack clinched the victory with a match tie break shootout win!

A great weekend of experience for the team with an average age of just 15 who all enjoyed their weekend away very much.
A special mention to Max who was voted players player by his peers for his performances and team spirit.
