Suffolk really were never in the hunt against their opponents, Norfolk, who are having a good run in the Liberty Trophy this season.

At Shotford Alfie Chambers' rink did look like gaining a point for Suffolk, but lost on the final end by one shot, after having been in the lead for 20 of the 21 ends.

Rink details: Jon Nixon, D Francis, J Knights, G Mulcairn 18, T. Dunton 28; J Shave, R Maskell, B King, A Chambers 21, R Mason 22; W Lyon, T Cunningham, I Platford, G Fellingham 16, J Sparrow 23; G. Smith, A Phillips, E Moule, G Rowlands 13, J George 22; D Revell, R Bartlett, D Hay, A Barnes 14, P Barr 30; N Pallant, P Haylock, D Hensby, B Gathercole 14, P Cook 33.
