Inter County Championships and England Trials 2020

A great weekend in Yarmouth for Kent pool with our county represented in five categories

Inter County Championships

An early start for the u23 teams playing on Thursday with the Kent team making it it to the semi-finals but unfortunately losing out 11:5 to Warwickshire.

Playing late on Friday evening didn’t work out well for the Men’s B team who lost narrowly to Devon 23:20 in the Intercounty Finals. Moving into the first round of the cup they won their first but match but couldn’t keep the run going losing 23:17 to Cornwall in the Quarter Finals.

Our Men’s A team made a good start beating Northamptonshire, but fell foul of a strong Norfolk team who pushed them out of the main event and into the Cup Quarter Final.

Our best performances came from the Ladies and Junior teams. The Ladies didn’t get off to the best of starts with a loss to Devon in the first round of the main event but made it all the way to the final of the Cup losing out to Cheshire in the final 23:19.

The Junior team had a great tournament making it all the way to the final, but came up against last years champions who proved far too strong and secured their second successive title winning 23:8. Still a great result for our young team who have a lot of potential for the future.

England Trials

Kent was well represented across the England Trials with nine players across the various categories.

In the Men’s section A team players Mitch Standen, Sean Kirby and Adam Bassoo competed for one of the eight places available. Adam had a great day winning 6/6 to qualify first.

We also had three players int he Ladies section, Karen Riches, Jan Spinner and Mel Clements with Mel making it into the squad.

Another three in the u23s with Kian Ballard, Steve Ritchie and Jasper Simmonds with Jasper and Steve qualifying.

Well done to all those who qualified and good luck when representing your country.

Next County Match: Away to Berkshire 09/02/2020

So the new season is upon us ….. stormy ride tomorrow on the roads to Berkshire so please be careful everyone . Get there safely…

We had our most successful year ever last year so what are we going to do this year ? I’m hoping for more of the same … and perhaps the seniors will chip in this year . Between this game and the next we have the little matter of Yarmouth …. so tomorrow is a good opportunity to relight that competitive edge.

Last year we had many positive reports from other counties about our competitive yet respectful banter on and off the table . I expect more of the same in this area also as it’s important to maintain the standards we have set ourselves .

We have a number of new juniors so please make an effort to say hello and welcome them to the county set up . If there’s a break in play wander to the next tables and give your other sections a bit of support .

Our C team has a significant number of new players also so again make them welcome to help them relax into what is a new experience for some.


We have now purchased our Kent Flags for Yarmouth , one for each of the teams so we can light up the venues a bit from here on in across the Counties.

Let’s start the season like we ended last season with some winning form to take into Yarmouth.


All the very best

Wilbo
