The Spring Matchplay event moves from Durham to Daventry for 2008 and now runs over an extra day.

There is also interest from overseas with former Australian #2 Alistair Kane and Irish experts Rik Kennedy, Joe McGinley and Alex Balogun also competing for this Major Event title. Results from Div A will also be included in Bob Jackman's international ratings system.
