Steve Raine

I'm 24, this is my last year as a junior bridge player. I've played once before for England U25s, playing with Dave Cropper again, way back in 2002 when we were 19.

Notable bridge achievements:

  • Won the Great Northern Swiss Pairs, with Phil Godfrey.
  • Got to the All Stars final of the Brighton teams - playing with Dave Cropper.
  • Final of the Hubert Phillips.
  • Final of the Garden Cities - finished 3rd (York BC).
  • Came 3rd twice, and second once in the under 19s (both 3rds) and the under 25's (2nd) in three consecutive years.
  • Played for Yorkshire over the past 5 years on numerous occasions.

I studied Maths at York university, and am currently training to be a Secondary School Maths teacher (doing a PGCE) in Nottingham.

My outside interests include Poker, Badminton and pool. I played badminton for York Uni, and play(ed) pool for both York and Nottingham.
