Both boys and girls gave it their all last Saturday, with both teams finishing in 3rd place.

2, Alexandra Kepa v Erin O'Boyle 1-4/1-4
3, Naomi Szczur v Maisie Smith 1-4/1-4
4, Isabella Chapman v Emily Pollard 0-4/1-4

The boys also played a very strong Leicestershire team and lost 1-3.
Almost getting a draw with Rhys Biro-Moore just losing in a match tie break which went to the wire. Isaac Morris getting our only win, playing a great match against a very tough opponent.

3, Rhys Biro-Moore v Dylan Sanghera 4-1/3-5(8-10)

Next up were a very strong Hereford & Worcester.

Once again the girls gave it their all. Once again no matches won, but Olivia Corfe came close, and Alexandra Kepa putting up a fantastic fight, losing 14-12 in a match tie break.

3,Rhys Biro-Moore v Scott Mortimer 3-5/4-1/(10-3)

Last up was Bedford. All the girls were determined to get something out of the day, and their patience and determination paid off, with all of them winning their final matches, three of them convincingly. Isabella Chapman winning without dropping a single game, and Naomi Szczur holding her nerve in a match tie break.

1, Olivia Corfe v Elizaveta Verzhbitskaya 4-1/4-1
2, Alexandra Kepa v Madeleine Whitley 4-1/4-0
3, Naomi Szczur v Melissa Winchester 4-0/0-4 (11-9)
4, Isabella Chapman v Nanette Hardy 4-0/4-0

The boys also got their well deserved win. Daniel Wright played really well, and was unlucky not to get his first win, having had tough opposition in every match. Puneet got his well deserved first win of the day, and Rhys also winning convincingly, with Isaac Morris just about holding it together, hobbling through to win his well earned third win of the day.

1, Daniel Wright v Jeevan Samra 3-5/2-4
2, Puneet Sunner v Finn Lester 4-1/4-0
3, Rhys Biro-Moore v Joshua Stewart 5-3/4-0
4, Isaac Morris v Sam Onions 5-4(7-0)/4-1

Overall, every single player representing Nottinghamshire gave everything they had for their County, and can be very proud of their achievements and efforts on the day.

Well done,and thanks again to all the players,
