Today, Friday 13th May saw our Women’s county team in action in their first game of the Northern Counties campaign, where we faced Cumbria at Caldbeck BC.
In a close contest we narrowly lost by only 8 shots, which saw 3 rinks up and 3 rinks down – which secured us 3 rink points but with Cumbria edging the victory it gave them the 4 match points in addition to the 3 rink points they gained as well.

E Bell 11 v C Gardner 23
