Surrey retained the Stovold Trophy and Middlesex came a credible 4th thanks to our win over Kent in our last match. As County Week was held at Hendon this year, some of the regular 2nd team play such as Lulu Housman, Veronique Veekamp and Nicola Grover took advantage of the home venue and this meant several new players came into the squad. Liz Kynoch from Highgate, Mina Hoshino from Sudbury and Mary McDowall from Mill Hill all made their mark with match wins. Bev Broad from Muswell Hill was awarded her County Colours and we say a fond farewell as she will be retiring to the West Country shortly. The southern region counties have a wealth of low handicap ladies and juniors compared to Middlesex and this year’s results reflect our will to succeed against tough opposition. Well done to all who played.
