EBU win the Camrose!

The EBU team managed to hold onto their lead from the first weekend and emerged the victors, 9 VPs ahead of England, and have won the Bridge Great Britain Camrose Trophy for the home nations. The weekend was extremely close throughout with all teams in contention but the two English teams pulled ahead towards the end and it was the EBU who did the most in the final match, beating Scotland 25-1 and winning the trophy. This win puts an end to four successive Irish wins.

The teams (from both weekends) were:

English Bridge Union:

Alexander Allfrey & Andrew Robson
Andy Bowles & John Howard
Jon Cooke & Martin Garvey
Peter Czerniewski & Ian Panto
Jeremy Dhondy & Alan Kay
Michael Byrne & Mike Bell

NPC: Chris Dixon


David Gold & Tom Townsend
Espen Erichsen & Norman Selway
Michelle Brunner & John Holland
David Bakhshi & Tony Forrester
Peter Crouch & Glyn Liggins

NPC: David Price

  3. John Howard - you are a star! Congrats! Bill

  4. Not wishing to single out any one person in particular, congratulations to the whole EBU team.
    Is this further evidence of the English Bridge renaissance? First Beijing and now the Camrose.
    Strength and depth; bring on the Italians

  5. A brilliant effort by the EBU team but can I ask why such an important event was organised on the same weekend as the Ranked Masters ?

  6. Well done TEAM EBU. Great advert for bridgey things.
