Leamington 4th August - Johns Trophy

01 Aug 2018

The Wiltshire Ladies including our own Janet Willis just lost out in the NATIONAL FINAL against Surrey.  Who won the Johns Trophy for a record breaking 22 time.

On the Saturday Morning  Wiltshire beat Yorkshire by 129 - 79. Janet played number 3 to Skip Delia Godwin of Melksham and they won by 20 -16.  The match started well and at 10 ends they were holding a 4 shot advantage 9-5. However Yorkshire got back into the game and at 18 ends there was only a shot advantage 16-15.

In the Afternoon in the Hot Sunshine the story was rather different for Wiltshire as they were always up against it with Surrey getting off to a good start and running out winners by 125 - 109.  Unfortunately for Janet's rink they lost 20-17 having been in front from the beginning until the last 2 ends.
