Results of Jamboree at Wellingborough

Unfortunately Scotland did not retain the Miller Stirling Trophy at Wellingborough this week.  The winners were South and runners up were Midlands.  Scotland were 3rd with North bringing up the rear as 4th.   A disappointing result for Scotland, but our Midland Vets representatives played well.  Hopefully Scotland will fare better in the Senior Home Internationals.
