County Championships - Veteran Premier Result

Veterans Premier Rounds 4 to 7

Held at Draycott Table Tennis Centre over the weekend of 21st and 22nd February 2015.

Prior to the start of the weekend Yorkshire had won all 3 matches which included beating Sussex, Sussex had lost to Yorkshire but had beaten Leicestershire and Leicestershire had lost to Sussex. The table was headed by Yorkshire with 6 points and Sussex and Leicestershire with 4 points.

This order remained through to end of Round 6 and, as they where playing Leicestershire in the last Round, Yorkshire only had to draw to win the League. Leicestershire needed to beat Yorkshire by at least 7 - 3 to ensure winning the League. Sussex needed to beat Cheshire by 9 - 1 to stand a chance of progressing up the table.

Sussex did all they could by beating Cheshire 9 - 1so the result rested on the Yorkshire/Leicestershire match. The 2 teams were level at 4 each after the 8th match so Leicestershire couldn't win but they could stop Yorkshire winning which they did by winning the last 2 matches. The 6 - 4 results for Leicestershire gave the Final table shown below.
