Durham girls go close in Junior Jamboree

Durham’s girls came incredibly close to winning the Northern Counties Junior Jamboree on home soil – missing out by just three points as Lancashire topped the leaderboard over two days at Wynyard.

Lancashire topped the table with 80 points as Cheshire finished second on 78 and Durham finished just three points behind the winners with a score of 77. Durham rallied after a slow start on day one and led the field on day two – winning four matches, halving one and losing one – to close the gap on the leaders. Meanwhile, Yorkshire finished fourth, Northumberland were fifth and Cumbria finished sixth.
