Well done to Jo Hicks, Linda Young & Maggie Jordan, who have been part of Wiltshire Ladies’ winning teams in the Johns Trophy this month.

On June 23rd, the Ladies again hit the road, this time facing Cornwall, and recorded an even wider winning margin racking up 134 to Cornwall’s 96 (17 – 5).

In the 3rd Round at Leamington, Highworth beat Sawtry BC of Huntingdonshire 22-4.

Progressing to the Quarter-Finals, the Ladies then beat Swanmore BC from Hampshire 20-17.

In the semi final the Highworth rink were up against Maggie Edwards, Jasmin Spear, Yvonne McKee and Brenda Bishop from Kingsthorpe BC, Northamptonshire, but were unfortunately beaten, just missing out on a place in the Finals.

This was certainly a massive achievement for the Highworth Ladies, and we believe this represents the best progress of any Wiltshire ladies in the Fours Championships.

Well done to Maggie, Joyce, Joanna and Linda.
