Yorkshire Junior League


The final (3rd) day of the experimental new Yorkshire Junior League was held on Sunday 29th April 2018, in Harrogate.


Three teams, from Harrogate, Wakefield and York, took part in the event, which was organised as a jamboree.  York were winners, with 10 points; Harrogate and Wakefield were joint second with 8˝ points each.  The winning York team consisted of the following players:

Joshua Burland, Nick Carden, Aaron Rich, Lucas Whitehead, Andy Carden and Japhet Cashdan.


Organiser Andrew Zigmond comments, “The event could not have run without Phill Beckett as arbiter and Noel Stewart providing training and analysis in the breakout room.  I am indebted to both.”
