Last weekend turned out to be a great one for the Hampshire O65s. Paul Reader, Barry Featherstone, Iain Nicholson and Dave Harris qualified for the finals at Coventry and North Warwick Sports Club along with six other counties, all competing to be National Champions. Hants' first game was against the holders Cumbria, with Hants managing a great win, beating Cumbria 2-1 and putting Hants into the top 4. The afternoon session placed Hants against Kent for a place in the grand final, with Hants coming out on top again, 2-1. The grand final was on Sunday with Hants playing the favourites, Surrey. After an epic struggle Hants once again won 2-1 with Barry winning 3-2 in final game.
