Corey Neville and Joe Quinn were the only Northants pair to bag a pairs win on the second day against Devon, but the team responded with singles points from Oddy and Quinn.
With the last two games going to their South West opponents, Northamptonshire’s hopes of glory ended however with halves from Luis Witherall and Neville.
The team completed their campaign on a high against Kent as Owen Watts, Josh Pritchett, Witherall, Oddy, Hayward, Neville and Quinn all got on the scoreboard in a 7-2 victory.
Northamptonshire’s Boys Under-14’s team, meanwhile, finished seventh out of 10 counties in the 2019 Midland Boys County  Team Championships at Broughton Heath GC.
