Johns Trophy

Bowls Oxfordshire ladies lost to Berkshire in the final Johns trophy group game on Saturday at Banbury Chestnuts.

The game was close fought with Oxon only losing overall by 12 shots with a few results going the right way would have seen victory by Oxon. Oxon only had two winning rinks with Carol Gaskin’s rink of Maggie Alderson, Pauline Williams and Daphne Jacob defeating Morgan Merryweather by 2 shots and Donna Knight’s rink of Helen Kinglsey, Sue Gokgor and Carole Galletly beating Helen Simpson by 1 shot.

A surprise result saw bottom of the table Bucks beat Kent, a clean sweep from either Berkshire or Oxfordshire would have seen them top the table and go through the regional finals. Kent live to fight another day and retained their place at the top of South A’s table.
