The latest Women’s county game – in the Northern Trophy was played this afternoon at Hexham Elvaston BC, and our opposition on this occasion was Cumbria,
Played under wet conditions our girls unfortunately suffered defeat by only 15 shots and collected 2 solitary points from the winning rink skipped by Benfield’s Dot Taylor, although as you can see below all of the rinks were close. Cumbria ran out 104 – 89 winners, and Cumbria collected 8 points in total.
