The Under-18 Boys were in division one for the first time in Suffolk’s history.

Spirits were high as they travelled to Bath. Everyone knew it was going to be a very tough weekend, but the boys used Leicester City winning the football Premiership as inspiration for anything can happen.

They started the weekend by playing Hertfordshire and quickly realised how tough the weekend was going to be and ended up losing 7-2.

Day two was West of Scotland, Suffolk knew that this was the one they stood most chance in winning.

A debut win from Asa Sumner Keens and wins from Noah Cutting and Ed Pomeroy ensured Suffolk went into the doubles at 3-3.
