The cadet team of Ben Aldridge, Adam Koszyk and Shivam Gopal started the final weekend in a strong position, 5 points behind the leaders Knighton Park, so all to play for.
We set off at a great pace with a 6-0 win in first match against Chandlers. The next match was against West Bridgeford, another 6-0 win with only one game going beyond 3 ends. Nottingham was the next opponent - proving slightly more challenge, but the players stepped up to the mark, winning 5-1 with Ben and Adam retaining their clean sheets. The final match was against Knighton Park,the team who started the day top. The boys played with great spirit with 4 of the matches going to 5 ends; Ben and Adam both lost very close games to the number one player, Faisal Mulla, and this time Shivam held his final game to 9 in the fifth, so keeping a clean sheet.
Despite this great set of results, we did not manage to catch Knighton Park and finished second, 2 points behind, in the Cadet League.
Well done to Ben, Adam and Shivam ,not only for the success, but the positive attitude and team work you have displayed. It has been a pleasure to coach you. Thanks must also go to their families support, with a special mention to Gabriela who assisted with the scoring sheets, umpiring and keeping us all on our toes.
