The opening weekend of the National Junior League took place on Sunday 11th December in Milton Keynes.
The team of Ben Aldridge, Adam Koszyk and Gabriella Koszyk, her first time playing in this event, competed in 3 matches in division 3 in a best of nine format.
The team started off successfully with a 9-0 win against Highfield C.
This was followed by the toughest match of the day against Banbury: Ben lost the opening game to Toby Dow, followed by another loss from Adam against George Fyre. Gabriella put us back on track with a 3-1 win against Ben Shanykugn but Ben was pushed too far by Ben Fyre, losing in 5. Gabriella couldn’t extend her winning run, going down to Toby Dow and George Fyre, but Adam and Ben pulled it back, winning their final games resulting in a 4-5 loss.
The final game was against Warren Springs B which the team won 8-1. The score does not reflect the tight nature of the hard fought and long match with 3 games going to 5 ends.
These results should mean that the team compete in division 2 on their second day.
Well done to all the players – it was an enjoyable day with everyone giving their best.
