England Under 25s win Channel Trophy

Congratulations to the England under 25 squad who won the Channel Trophy in Ostend.

The team of Alex Roberts & Shivam Shah, Kyle Lam & Simon Spencer and Toby Nonnenmacher & Michael Alishaw won five of their six matches (the only defeat being by one imp) to win by a comprehensive 12 VPs.

Both the 'Girls' team of Laura Covill & Alex Birchall and Katy Lee & Carina Negreanu, and the 'Youngsters' team of Freddie Illingworth & Ben Norton, George Siddons & Oliver Powell and Jonathan Derrick & Nick Dean, finished 4th in their events. Nearly all are relatively new to the international teams, however, and the experience will serve them well as they continue their development in the game.
