11th European Team Championships Semi-Final

Russell Sherwood  Saturday, May 13, 2017

Wales were handed an interesting draw this week in the 11th European Team Championships Semi-Finals.


With the unusual qualification rules for the finals of 1st,2nd,3rd plus the Best 4th placed team over the 3 Semi-Finals, joining the 1st,2nd and 3rd from the Finals of the 10th European Team Championships this could rightly be considered a “Group of Death”, with 8 teams being within a 100 rating points.

The Welsh Team of Tony Balshaw, Austin Lockwood, Helen Sherwood, John Claridge, Russell Sherwood, Ian Jones, Gareth Yeo and Mark Adams is the strongest Team Welsh CC has ever fielded!

Updates will be posted on the website in due course!
