Lancashire's U180 and U160 players headed off to Finals Day of the ECF County Championships on Saturday, 13th July 2013. The venue for the event was the Trident Centre, Warwick and play was due to start at 13:30. Unfortunately many of Lancashire's players were late due to closure of the M6 and this did our players no favours at all.
Despite the travel problems, and defaulting board 1 because Dominic Rabbitte couldn't make it through the traffic on time, the U180 team were comfortable winners in the end against Cambridgeshire. Congratulations to captain John Cooper and all his players.
Unfortunately the U160 team couldn't quite surmount the travel difficuties and ended up losing a very close match to Essex. Many thanks are due to the organisers and the Essex captain and players who all did what they could to accomodate our late arrivals.
