With so few paddlers, Stortford's club position was always going to be disappointing, and we ended in 5th place, behind Chelmsford CC, Cambridge CC, Norwich CC and Leighton Buzzard CC. This has led to the interesting situation in which we are now tied in second place with Cambridge, Buzzard and Norwich.
However, enough points were scored by our unranked juniors (Daniel, Oliver, Jasper, Rupert and Emilie) to take joint second place with Leighton Buzzard CC in the competition for the Dick Greave Trophy. In terms of the series, we are now on an equal footing with Chelmsford, and Leighton Buzzard close behind - both of whom still have their home races to come.
