The England Under 25s have finished 4th in the European Youth Bridge Championships. Having led for much of the event it was disappointing that they finished outside the medals, however it was the side's best result since the Great Britain team in 1994, and was an excellent performance.
Congratulations to Tom Paske & Shivam Shah; James Paul & Alex Roberts; Dan McIntosh & Rob Myers; NPC: Alan Shillitoe; Coach: Jon Cooke
