09/02/20: Under-25s National Double Rink: Devon v Somerset
On Sunday 9 February Devon played Somerset in the Quarter Final of the
Under 25 National Inter County Double Rink Competition. The match was
played with one rink at each Exonia and Ilminster.
Over recent times Devon has a 100% winning record against Somerset
however from the outset of this match it was apparent Somerset were
intent on reversing their fortunes. Whilst the match at Exonia remained
close throughout the early significant lead secured by Somerset at
Ilminster proved decisive.
Despite Devon’s best attempts at both venues on this occasion Somerset
ran out victors 45-29 and they will now play Essex in the Semi-Finals.
The players who represented Devon this year were:- Kieran Daniels(Ex),
Sean Howard(Tby), Scott Eveleigh(Ex), Kieran Kniveton(Ex), Connor
Fielder(Ply), Luke Fisher(Ex), Will Stevens(Ex), Harry Goodwin(Ex) and
My thanks to the players for their efforts and support and hopefully we
can look forward to reaching the final stages next year.
22/12/19: Under-25s National Double Rink: Devon v Dorset
