Division 1 League Loss to Bamburgh

The Durham team of Andrew Carpenter, Malcolm Hobbs, Nigel Martin and Tony McCann went up to Bamburgh on Friday 8 July to play this season’s Division 1 league match against Bamburgh A.

Using three lawns, each of which had their individual idiosyncrasies, it took the Durham team some time to settle and as a result lost the morning session 2-7. After lunch we did much better and won the second half 5-4, but this was not enough avoid losing 7-11 overall.

As usual our hosts were exceedingly welcoming and, of course the location is stunning, which together with fine and warm weather led to an enjoyable day out on the north east coast.
