Shrewsbury entered two teams into the Schools’ Challenge South Midlands Regional Competitions, held at King Edward’s School, Birmingham on Thursday 13th November.
The first team, consisting of Ollie Hope (Ch UVI), Dan Edwards (S UVI), Sonny Koh (Ch UVI), Ollie Bureau (Ch IV), Mil Luangamornlert (SH IV) and Angus Warburg (PH IV) came third out of 16 teams, losing to the eventual winner KES Birmingham in the semi-finals.
The second team comprising Sasha Arridge (Rb UVI), Jamie Nugent (SH UVI), Joe Lafferty (PH UVI), Will Shawe Taylor (O IV), Tom Hughes (Ch IV) and Jamie Channon (PH IV) advanced to the quarter-finals and were cruelly eliminated in sudden death after their match ended 440-440 in regulation time.
