Stop press: a famous victory!

The annual Cornwall V Devon inter-regional triples match took place at Isca Petanque Club, Exeter, on Sunday 1 July. For the first time that anyone can remember Cornwall came out on top with a final score of Cornwall 23 wins, Devon 13, with an overall points difference of +63.

Six teams from each region took part. Team of the match were Cornwall's no 3, Simon Penna, Steven Boyne and Roy Pemberton, who won all six of their games during the day. Three other Kernow teams won four games and the others two.

Most of the Cornwall squad have taken part in previous Cornwall - Devon battles, but the victory was a particularly notable success for five members who have been playing at club level for less than two years.

Devon President John Thatcher was magnanimous in defeat: 'Congratulations to Kernow for not only winning yesterday but soundly thrashing Devon. It had to happen sometime and yesterday was your day, well done. We will return to you next year in Kernow and try to do much better.'

Many thanks to John and his team for hosting and organising the event.
