Thongsbridge’s rising star, Barney Fitzpatrick, continues his run of superb form, with yet another mini orange (under 9s) title to add to his County and National titles. Competing in a high grade event in Sheffield, this promising youngster put in an excellent performance to secure the winner’s medal. He now sits in second place on the Master’s Leader Board, which will undoubtedly secure him a place in the â€œinvitation onlyâ€ top level National event at the end of the season.
14 year old Holly Horsfall travelled to Corby to represent Yorkshire with other top county players, to compete in the prestigious under 18s 12 Counties Event. Holly produced some solid wins, to help the County team secure a 4-0 win against Essex, and 2-2 draws with Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire. Yorkshire’s final standing in this event will depend on how all the other age groups, from under 12s to seniors do in the coming weeks, but, having won the 1st division last year, Yorkshire will be very much hoping to repeat the feat this year.
