Mens O40s Narrowly miss out at Lee Valley
Published: 3 Apr 2017
Having already qualified in the preliminary rounds the O40s Norfolk Men were drawn against Essex in the semi-final at the East Masters Regional County Competition at Lee Valley. Their winning score of 3-0 (Scorers: Matthew Brine, Nick Hooper, James Nash) took them into the final against Cambridgeshire who had made it through their semi-final round earlier in the day.
Although Norfolk had the lead over Cambridgeshire for the majority of the final, with goals from Norfolk's Rupert Snelling and Dave Francis, Cambridgeshire squeezed in an equaliser in the last moments of the match to take it to exciting penalty strokes with Norfolk just missing out losing 6-5 in a sudden death shoot out.
The squad consisted of players from Norwich City, Dereham, Harleston Magpies, Norwich Dragons, Pelicans and North Norfolk.
