Spring 2019 Success
Spring Fours (EBU double elimination knock-out teams event)
Sam Anoyrkatis (playing with Elizabeth Gahan) and Theo Anoyrkatis (playing with Andy Cope) represented the under 21 Gahan team. They lost their first match, won their second but lost their third. They then entered the secondary event, The Punch Bowl, and came top of their group of eight teams qualifying them for the knock-out stages. Although they lost their first match, this is a great achievement for Sam and Theo who were playing against some of the top players in the country. We also congratulate Sam and Elizabeth for being picked to represent England in the upcoming European Championships with Theo and Andy as reserves. We wish them success.

Mike Walsh was in the winning team in both the Seniors Teams and the Swiss Teams.
Nicko (EBU Inter-Club Knock-Out)
