England juniors reach semis in Israel

The England U26 team continued their preparations for the World Youth Team Championships with a good performance at the Tel Aviv International Bridge Festival. Michael Alishaw & Stephen Kennedy and Shahzaad Natt & Ben Norton were narrowly defeated at the semi-final stage - by just 7 IMPs to the eventual winners. Michael and Stephen then went on to compete in the Pairs competition where they finished 13th of the 80 pairs in the A Final.

Support the junior teams
We are delighted that donations continue be made to the fundraising effort to support the junior teams competing in the World Youth Team Championships. The total has reached over £42,000, which is excellent, but we still hope to reach £60,000 by the time the teams fly east. If you would like to support them please donate through this page on the EBED website.
