On Sunday 1st July, at Salisbury Bowls Club, Joanna Hicks and Linda Young came through their last 8 and last 4 play-offs to set up an appearance at Leamington in the Ladies’ National Pairs. It was a second success of the weekend for Linda, who had qualified for the Ladies National Singles the previous day at Holt.
Playing Nikki Kemble-Young & Bev Millen of Supermarine in their first game, Jo and Linda came out 21-19 victors, adding to Linda’s close fought successes of the weekend.
Come their second match and the Highworth pair found the going a little more comfortable, coming home 22-8 winners against Georgina Newman and Marcia Hartley of Avon.
The County Pairs Final will be held at Avon on Saturday 28th July where Sue Cooke and Alex Jacobs from Box will provide the opposition.
Congratulations Jo and Linda. Best of luck in both your pursuits of Leamington and County glory.
