Tri-Way 2016

25 October 2016

This year was no different to the usual pattern in finding a squad for the Triway - the teams (top 5 qualifying teams) were notified in plenty of time but as usual there was the annual last minute rush around to find players. As always we attempted to find places in other teams for players whose teams were unable to go, but this year we had to include a team from the challenge to fill the squad

Even though it was the East Mids turn to host the event, we all travelled down to the Chesfield Manor Equestrian Centre near Stevenage to try a new indoor venue. The fibre surface was freshly scraped and was a great leveller as it changed throughout the day

MATCH REPORT First round was all level, and then East Mids had a storming second round, winning all their games, so by lunch we were well in front. Chiltern recovered in the last two rounds to take second place

FINAL SCORE East Midlands 20 wins, Chiltern 14 wins, Anglia 11 wins

TOP TEAM on the day was EM6 with 4 wins +25 points

MANAGER’S MOMENT of the day was Joe Sheffield and his team playing Chiltern juniors - well done Joe. You are a credit to the East Mids

VERDICT An enjoyable first Tri-Way at a new venue
