Report from William Orr

The U140 team played Derbyshire at the Lindum Group in North Hykeham, the match starting slightly later than planned after the Derbyshire players had negotiated various road works and delays on the way.

As usual I didn’t see too much of the action, but an occasional look at the score-sheet showed Derbyshire with a comfortable lead that eventually led to an 11-4 match winning result. There were draws for John Mainwaring, Graham Rae, Frank Robinson and John Pocock. My own game ended when I requested a draw according to the 2-minute rule, and the game was subsequently sent for adjudication.

There were wins for Andy Harris and David Scott.
