Covid-19 conditions permitting, the finals will be held on Saturday 2nd July at the Bosworth Hotel and Spa, The Park, Market Bosworth, Nuneaton CV13 0LP.
Northumberland and Devon have given notice to play at an intermediate venue by reason of travel time in excess of 3.5 hours.
Open - Northumberland v Yorks (they can presumably sort out a convenient venue)
Minor - Norfolk v Devon (where are you playing this Jon?)
u2050 - Essex v Surrey
u1850 - Middlesex v Yorks
u1650 - Warks v Surrey
u1450 - Essex v Surrey

Impressive from Surrey

SCCU 6, NCCU 3, EACU 1, WECU 1, MCCU 1

Good luck to all the teams
It looks as though it will be either Reading or Woking area.

Looking likely to be Darlington, which is close enough to the border to qualify as fairly neutral :)

Hopefully it'll be a really strong match.

If it was board count, then I suspect Northumberland won (they would also win on board elimination as well):

Northumberland board count: 51
Yorkshire board count: 64

That is impressive given Yorkshire's dominant recent record in the event.

Are there any accounts yet of how close it was in terms of how the scores progressed on the day? And are all the games available from the live broadcast?

It looks like they are all available:

Do games like that go on Britbase?

Well done Northumberland! I notice they got all their best players out, which they didn't used to do.

I guess that winning the online championship gave them a taste for it :)

Definitely well done to Northumberland. Very nice to see a different team winning the Open.
