Two losses for Kernow in 2015 inter-regional matches

There were disappointing results for Cornwall in both the inter-regional events played this summer.

The first of these was the annual joust against Devon region, held at the Star Inn, St Day, on 28 June. Six triples played five rounds with Devon coming out with 20 wins against Cornwall's ten.

Four Cornwall teams managed two wins. Roy Pemberton, Terry Jones and Dion Beechey of the Coaching Inn PC had the best result, with a points difference of +3. Rob Sullivan, Andy Rose and Mark Hypponen had a zero points difference, Pete English, Andrew and Sarah Jarvis had -3 and the North Inn PC triple of Colin Boot Booth, Ray Beresford and Pete PD Downing came out with -7.

Two teams took one win: Barbara Brown, Lena Daddow and Pete Lynas, and Paul Rundle, Kate and Robert Herrick.

Devon gained a second victory a week later at the three-way competition played against Great Western and Kernow at the Isca Centre, Exeter, on 5 July. Devon took 15 wins from their 24 games, Great Western 11 and Cornwall eight.

The most successful Cornwall team was Ray, Boot and PD from the North Inn, who took three wins from their four games and ended with a points difference of +10. Two other teams - both including 'borrowed' players from Devon because of illness in the Cornwall squad - had two wins. Another Kernow triple won one out of four and two had a very disappointing day with no victories.

Other members of the Cornwall squad were Lena Daddow, Pete English, Sue Hardy, Kate and Robert Herrick, Mark Hypponen, Sarah Jarvis, Dave Lynas, Pete Lynas, Roy Pemberton, Andy and Enid Rose, and Paul Rundle. Barbara Brown and Andrew Jarvis were both unable to play because of illness: many thanks to Costa Drakatos and Del Hansen for stepping in.
