England wins Teltscher Trophy

England have retained the Teltscher Trophy, at the 'Senior Camrose' which took place in Belfast.

The England team of Nick Irens, Tony Forrester, David Kendrick, Norman Selway & John Holland started slowly, losing three of their first four matches, but thereafter were undefeated. They finished on 138.82 VPs, with Ireland second on 122.39 VPs, and the Patron's team (which included Clive Owen & Brian Senior) third on 96.83.

It is believed that Tony and David are the first English players to have won the Junior Camrose, Camrose, and Senior Camrose.

The NPC for the team was Derek Patterson. Colin Simpson, who recently received the EBU's Diamond Award, was selected for the team but due to ill-health was unable to take part.
