August 17th 2003

England beat South Africa 10-5 in an exciting weekend match at Edgbaston. The England side were British number 1 Robert Fulford, Stephen Mulliner, Mark Avery, Daniel Mills (pictured) and Gabrielle Higgins.

The South African side were World number 1 Reg Bamford, Mark Suter, Andrew Hobbs, Meshack Mazibuko and Victor Dladla.

Mills played his part, beating Mazibuko and Dladla and helping Avery to a +13 win in a doubles match against Suter and Dladla.

The big game between Bamford and Fulford was played infront of a large crowd with Fulford coming out victorious. The win was enough to enable him to regain the World number 1 position.

The event was very special as it is the 1st time that 2 black players have represented South Africa internationally. The event was a great success and a wonderful sporting occasion.
