Cumbria v Lancashire Match at Barrow 13/7/2014

Lancashire won the annual County match against Cumbria by around 150 Imps. Cumbria were in the lead early on, but Lancashire had a slender lead (+14) by half time. After being treated to an excellent buffet by the Barrow Ladies, the Lancashire players were sufficiently revived to win the second half comfortably. The match was run under Ken Johnson's excellent direction and both captains (Dave Pendlebury and Trevor Ward) commented on the friendly manner in which the match was played by the two Counties.

Congratulations to Silver Medal Winner Catherine Draper!

In the European Championships held at Croatia, England Women's team of Heather Dhondy & Nevena Senior, Sally Brock & Nicola Smith, Fiona Brown & Catherine Draper, with NPC Derek Patterson and coach David Burn, were narrowly pipped by the Netherlands after a final day in which the lead of the competition changed multiple times, and came down to the final board in the Estonia-Netherlands match. This adds to a long run of success for the England Women's team which has seen them pick up two gold medals and two silver medals in the last four major international events.
