Inter-County GC division 2 Championship 2021

[<<] [>>] by Ivor Brand at Cheltenham
25th August (GC - Championships)

Justice was done in more ways than one!!!

I will explain myself firstly with reference to last year's final positions and the disappointment of the lack of promotion due to 'Covid' reasons. Fortunately, despite three teams having equal wins it was the same two counties that again qualified for promotion, albeit they could only be separated on who beat who, phew!!!

However, at this point I must explain my second point of justice, which was that the CA select team (my tip for winning by the way) finished at the top of the table and were recognised as deserved champions, despite not being able to be promoted as they were not a 'county' as the tournament conditions dictate. Congratulations to Michael Biliton who led his team of experience (Charles Sale & David Cornes) and youth (Jack Good & Ellie Ross) to victory.

I look forward to seeing 'most' of you again next year at 'sunny' Southwick where at least Oxfordshire will not be able to keep me from the pub by playing on till 8pm on the Saturday!!!
