Oxfordshire Junior County Championships
The Oxfordshire Junior Team finished 5th/7 in Division 2D of the County Championships, after beating Wiltshire 8-2 and losing to Sussex 3 2-8 in the final round of matches at Cippenham on Saturday. Lewis Sumner (Bicester), Jack Shardlow (Bicester) and 13 year-old Niall Harris, making his debut at this level, were a trifle fortunate to take all six boysÔÇÖ singles against Wiltshire, as the last two both went to deuce in the 5th. Both Teisi Tamming and Chloe Yau had to give best to Di Lu, but beat Ellie Galloway. In the afternoon match Sussex 3 provided much stronger opposition, and only Lewis and Teisi were able to register wins, Lewis beating Erik van Mol and Teisi defeating England no 3 Under 13 girl, Kate Cheer, both in straight games.
