Tollemache Qualifier19-Nov-2017

With the draw now known earlier in the week, Suffolk approached Saturday knowing their place in the 'Group of Death'. The draw is partially seeded as last year's eight finalists are split between the four groups but along with two seeds (holders London and Manchester), two counties who narrowly missed out last year (Cambs & Hunts, Surrey) dropped into Group A. The remainder were contenders from past eras.

With that context established Suffolk struggled and finished bottom, gaining some scalps on the way. This wasn't as bad as it looks and, as a whole, the team played in line with ratings. It's a tough game.

The county were represented by Rick Hanley (Capt.), Chris Chambers, Peter Gemmell, Eric Newman, Jeff Orton, Karen Pryor, Malcolm Pryor and Mike Sherer.
