Report from Colin Philip

The Lanarkshire Junior Team had the short journey to the Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility on Saturday, 1 December 2012 to compete in the Junior Inter Area Competition.

Unfortunately, for a variety of reason, after withdrawals, only four Teams were left to compete in the event, which in itself was a real disappointment to the players and Team managers, Ross MacLeod and Bill Neill.

However, because of the lack of Teams, the Inter Area Organiser decided that, to ensure that the players all had plenty of games on the day, two games per discipline were to be played rather than the one that was usually played.

While this change in format suited the Teams with plenty depth in strength, these added games seemed to work a bit against the Lanarkshire Team.

Nevertheless, Lanarkshire had a resounding victory over the Team from the Borders. Unfortunately, we were less fortunate against the Teams from Glasgow and Edinburgh, both of whom were fielding the stronger players from their Area. At the end of the day, Lanarkshire finish in 3rd place.

Bearing in mind that we had a reasonably young and inexperienced Team, coupled with the strength of the opposition, Bill admitted afterwards that although the end result was a bit disappointing, there was no doubt that the Team will reap the benefits from the experience.
