02/02/15: The 2015 Northern Tournament at Shrewsbury was, as always, a huge success, with nearly 60 pairs braving the usual arctic early February conditions to enjoy an enjoyable weekend's Fives.
The tournament was won for the fifth successive time - a unique feat - by Tom Dunbar and Seb Cooley, who continued their remarkable record of never being beaten as a pair after five years of playing together. They did, however, lose their fourth game in that time, to the same opponents who had won the previous two in the same tournament last season, Olavians Matthew Wiseman and James Toop, during the course of a magnificent final that held the good number of spectators enthralled from start to finish.

The 2014 Northern Tournament saw a record (surely?) 72 pairs take part over the weekend in the main tournament, the festival and an assortment of plate competitions. Players from all points of the Fives compass made the trip to Shrewsbury and were rewarded with the traditional two days of fun, cameraderie and Fives.
