On 7 February, Suffolk played Cambridgeshire in the morning, losing for the first time this season by the score of 5½-10½. The only Suffolk player to record a win was top board Alan Merry. In the afternoon, Suffolk were due to play Hertfordshire, but they were unable to field a team, so the Suffolk players all went home early!
There is some debate amongst the EACU county captains as to what should be done. It seems that some 'double-headers' may need to be played.
