This is the Norwich team, together with coach Stephen Orton hiding at the rear and parent Liam Dolder (right):
The Norwich players were, on average, considerably older that Bury's, with many of them of secondary school age. They also had strength in depth, whilst most of Bury's lower boards were very young and inexperienced. Three of Bury Knights' bottom boards (Tania Roy, Dylan Rajayogan and Harry Butterworth) were only six years old.
The final score was 62 - 34 to Norwich. However, over the top 15 boards, Bury would have won narrowly by 30½ to 29½! Bury only scored 3½ points out of a possible 36 on the lower nine boards, but won 8 - 4 on the top six boards.
Two Bury members scored 2 points: Aaron Saenz de Villaverde (Board 8) and Aidan Myerscough (Board 12),
Norwich JCC have invited the Bury Knights to a return (revenge?) match on a Saturday in the summer term.
