A weekend of hard work paid off for the talented boys who were rewarded with victory after beating all other counties in their group of the County Cup on the weekend of 19, 20, and 21 February.
The Cambridgeshire team were competing in division four alongside Norfolk, Bedfordshire and West Scotland, with the team including Matt Nicholson-Lewis, Sam Fleck, Jack Thorndike, Will Huyton, James Morris, Josh Lighthowler and Ben McCan.
Day one drew Cambridgeshire against Bedfordshire.Cambridgeshire got off to a flying start beating Bedfordshire 9-0. Day two saw Cambridgeshire face their rivals Norfolk. After some excellent tennis and some ‘edge of your seat’ moments Cambridgeshire won 6-3. On the final and deciding day Cambridgeshire played West Scotland and proudly stormed to a 5-1 lead. Cambridgeshire, the well deserved winners were presented their winners medals, donning their best smiles for the photo call and celebrated their victory.
Captaining the team for the first time was professional coach Hamid Hejazi who did an excellent job motivating and leading the boys.
“ I thoroughly enjoyed taking on this role. Having worked with players competing at a high level both nationally and inter-nationally from various counties, this was my first experience captaining a Cambridgeshire team so it was a privilege to be asked. Having been a part of their victory I hope to be back next year and would like to thank the team for working hard and making this experience both rewarding and enjoyable” – Hamid
