The first player in action was Leighton Bennett
in the singles semi final and he took his place in the final with a 2-0 sets win
over Netherlands Luke van der Kwast. The next player in action was Beau Greaves

Things were still going against England as the
boys team let a 4-3 lead slip against the Republic of Ireland and they lost the
semi final 9-4, once again losing to the eventual champions. However things
improved in the next two games as first Leighton Bennett took the singles title
and gold medal with a 3-1 sets win over Jurjen van der Velde, that also sealed
the silver medal in the overall table.

EUROPE CUP YOUTH
Day two of the Youth Europe Cup saw the girls
play their singles event, with all players being in a round robin groups. Beau
Greaves won all four of her games to win her group, but unfortunately Shannon
Reeves only won one of her games and didn't qualify for the last eight games.
Beau won her last eight match 3-1 against Sophie McKinlay (Scotland) to move
into Saturday's semi final where she will play Tamara Kovacs (Hungary).
Later on the girls were back in action as they
played the semi final of the pairs and we are delighted that they beat the Dutch
pairing of Rietbergen & Van der Velde 3-1 to gain a place in Saturday's final
against the Scottish pair of McKinlay & O'Brien.
The boys were in action in the tem event and they
won their group after beating both Hungary and Turkey 9-3, this got them into
the last eight where another 9-3 victory over Wales put them into Saturday's
semi final where they will play the Republic of Ireland.
The final match saw Keelan and Brad narrowly lose
2-3 to against Van der Velde/Van der Kwast of the Netherlands and so had to
settle for a bronze medal. But on a positive note all six England players are
guaranteed to come home with at least one medal each.
