Eastern Counties

Northamptonshire claimed the notable scalp of eventual winners Essex on their way to finishing seventh out of nine teams in the Eastern Counties at Seacroft.
Charlie Salter and Liam McNeela won twice on the opening morning as Northants beat Bedfordshire and lost to Leicestershire, before the side suffered defeats to both Suffolk and Norfolk in the afternoon.
A narrow victory against Berks, Bucks & Oxon and a 4-1 loss to Cambridgeshire followed the next morning, before the county ended their campaign on a high as they lost just one of five ties against both Essex and Lincolnshire on the final afternoon.
