WORCESTERSHIRE 7 BERKSHIRE 5
Congratulation to Worcestershire for reaching the online Minor Open Championship Final where the team led by Captain Stephen Woodhouse will face Somerset on August 22nd; thanks to this result in beating Berkshire.
This is all the more remarkable considering the difficulties involved in having to form teams from under-strength squads due to the complexities involved in players having to learn how to use newly created online systems.
It will surely be an even more impressive achievement if the team manages to beat Somerset for a second time in this 2020 campaign.
Reaching the final with the possibility of lifting the national title, is largely due to the hard work Stephen has put into coordinating the Worcestershire online project.
