Andrew Ashenhurst, teacher at nearby St. Peter’s School, Lympsone, has just collected 30 sets of equipment for the Devon Junior Championships, to be held on Saturday at the Teign School, Kingsteignton, near Newton Abbot.
There will be sections for the U-9s, U-11s and U-15s, plus a team competition. Broadclyst Primary are entering 2 teams and are favourites to win. Theo Slade, whose home is in Marhamchurch, N. Cornwall, but now attends Shebbear College in N. Devon, thus qualifying him for this tournament, must be favourite for the U-11s. But nothing’s written in stone – it’s a funny old game. Watch this space for details of winners.
