Oxfordshire men’s over 70s had contrasting fortunes with two matches last weekend.

The team of Jon Dilworth, Roger Selby, Mike Morgan and Nigel Tucker were whitewashed 8-0 at Newquay by a strong Cornwall side which featured two Great Britain players.

But they bounced back strongly the following day to win 6-2 at home to Derbyshire.
