England Under 20s win Channel Trophy

The U20s team won every match, and led from

start to finish in a tremendous display of quality

and aggression. The December event was held at

the headquarters of the Dutch Bridge Federation

in Utrecht. The team beat France in the first match

before demolishing the Netherlands. Two solid

wins against Belgium and another crushing of the

Dutch meant a small cushion over France. In the

final match England narrowly beat the French to

win the Trophy.

This was an England U20 debut for Kripa

Panchagnula and Jonathan Clark. Ben Norton and

Sam Behrens have been capped many times while

Liam Sanderson and Daniel Winter previously

played in Tromso for the U15 team. This was a first

win for all six players.

Good results all round

In the U25s England had a chance going into the

final match but couldn't maintain their early lead

against France, and finished third.

In the U25 Women's event England fielded three

young players, Jasmine Bakhshi, Megan Jones and

Liz Gahan who were the youngest ever to represent

their country along with two older, and more

experienced players, Laura Covill and Katy Lee,

and Helen Holmes, who was making her debut.

Although they started very slowly they gained in

momentum as the event went on and in the final

matched destroyed the Belgium team to finish in

third place.
