Brief Report sent to me by Steve Blair
They won one, drew two and lost one. It was a long day after a very early start.
Were the wrong side of a majority of the five setters, which would have made a big difference. They go again in March next year for round 2.
They played four yesterday (Devon 2 (L), Essex 1 (D), Sussex 2 (D) and Hampshire (W) and the other three (Bucks, Middlesex and Surrey) are at the end of March 2019.
The County Championships are played between teams representing the English counties and Wales with promotion and relegation between divisions in Cadet, Junior, Senior, Veteran and Over-60 age groups.
Teams of players are selected by their County Association.

Just another reminder that myself and 5 times national champion Alex Perry are holding a summer training camp in late August (please see poster for more details) the perfect way to get in shape for the county trials in September.
