Thomason Trophy

Daventry gave a good account of themselves against strong opposition from the other Northamptonshire Clubs. Success came from the team skipped by Mick Worthington and a noteable draw from the team skipped by Michael Moulton. 3 of the other rinks were in contention for periods of their games but were unable to get over the line.

Considering the number of players not available to the selectors this was a noble effort. Thanks for your support.
