Shropshire edge out Yorkshire

There were 5 chalks in it again between Shropshire and Yorkshire, just like the 2016 final, but this time it was us who came out on the right side of the scoreline. Rich Goddard held his nerve last one to win 11 to seal the success, and set us up nicely with a game against North Lancs & Fylde next month, they beat Cumbria in the other game in the group. The away side did another excellent job away from home, holding them to just 9 chalks. Jon Palmer, on his Shropshire debut, won 6 from about 6-5 up, and when Callum Wraight added a 6 win at number 5 too, we were only 3 down after eight games off. At Newport, and 6 winners out of the first 8 gave us a 24 shot lead, but only one winner in the back, albeit our best one from Wayne Rogers 21-8, meant we only won by 14 there. Paul Reeves won 14 at the back in Yorkshire but two defeats there meant we were 5 down overall with Rich Goddard left on. He used all of his experience though to beat Ashley Daykin 11 and seal the victory.
