Congratulations to our U12 boys Jack, Bobby and Arthur who represented Oxfordshire at the Lionel Cox tournament held at Queenswood School. Lionel Cox is the oldest county junior county event in the East region.
The boys played against teams from Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire and Suffolk in the group stages winning all of their ties. The final was played against a very strong Northamptonshire side.
Our boys, Bobby at number 1, Arthur at number 2 and Jack at number 3 battled really hard and after the first two rubbers it was 1-1. The decider was to be Arthur’s match V Northamptonshire’s number 2. A rollercoaster of emotions and two hours later Arthur held his nerve and constructed a fantastic win 2-4 5-3 10-8 to the delight of our team.
Looking good with those medals boys.
