A GREAT win by the Northamptonshire under-25s double rink has booked a trip to the National Championships.

They qualified to play at Worthing in August with a 20-shot victory over Suffolk at Soham in the Inter County National Double Rink competition for the White Rose Trophy.

At the halfway stage the County players were in front by around 12 shots and, although Suffolk dug in deep to keep the advantage within reaching distance, Jamie Walker’s rink picked up a six to go 26-13 up with few ends left to play.

Callum Height’s rink changed a head against them to go three shots in front at 16-13 and the writing was on the wall for the Suffolk rink against him as they scored no more shots to the end.

Northamptonshire 50 Suffolk 30: Adam Brown/Connor Cinato/Matt Pownall/Callum Height 21 Mark Rumsby 13; Matt Wordingham/Dan Height/Will Parker/Jamie Walker 29 Ian Catchpole.
