Staffs U120's Through To Final Of County Championship

The Staffs U120 team progressed to the County Championship Final following a tremendous Semi-Final win against Essex on Saturday afternoon. In a nail biting finish Staffs were leading 5.5 - 2.5 and only needing a single point from the final 4 games to win the match. Unfortunately 3 of these were lost causes so Essex looked set to level the score at 5.5 - 5.5. However, Team Captain Peter Evans rose to the occasion with the required win, and the point that gave us a 6.5 - 5.5 victory, sending us into the Final.
