Following on from this success, a statement from Brian Hurst (2019 Secretary) about...
The Ladies Seniors Friday afternoon league:
I would like to update you on the magnificent run of success that our Senior Ladies team, captained by Sheila Common, are having since entering the above tournament for the first time this year. The format is for 1 x Rink of Senior Ladies played as the name suggests on a Friday afternoon, on a home and away basis.
They have currently played eight games out of a projected fourteen games and have won seven of them, a really fine achievement considering the limited amount of lady players available for selection. This high standard they have set is going to be difficult to maintain with the number of other events that they are involved in and they have another six games to play, four of those away.
So let's show them our support. Have a look in your Fixture book to see where they are playing
2019 WINNERS OF THE LADIES EAST HERTS FRIDAY AFTERNOON LEAGUE
What a year this has been. Not content with the Mixed Team winning the Kent Cup and being runners-up for the Danial Robinson Trophy, our ladies Four have topped the lot by winning the fiercely contested Ladies East Herts Friday league. I hope you will join me in congratulating these wonderful ladies.
From the ‘Fab Four’ to the ‘Four Tops’ by Brian Hurst (2019 Secretary)
After fourteen hard fought games, starting back in early May our Senior Ladies have emerged as worthy winners against seven equally tenacious teams. Every Friday afternoon during the past fourteen weeks has seen them battling away somewhere in the name of Havers Park Bowls Club and in all weathers.
Friday 9th August at Havers Park saw their final game to be played, against Elsenham, the League leaders, in what turned out to be the deciding match and which Havers won by a considerable margin, in front of an over-excited group of supporters. The coolest were the ladies themselves who had held their game together remarkably well, despite one of the Elsenham ladies collapsing on the Green. Duncan to his disappointment did not get to use the defibrillator and thankfully all was well after a short break.
Nobody knew what the position was at the finish because there were a number of other games going on. We knew that Havers were in the frame for a high finish, so it was an anxious time waiting for the results to be finalised. Not, I hasten to add for the ladies who took themselves off to Hertford for the Shield match the next day.
On Tuesday 13th the results dropped into Sheila’s email box. They had WON! Some achievement considering it was the first time of entering the League and with so few ladies to select from.
Well done the TEAM - Photo - Jo Jolley - Sheila Common - Elizabeth Rosair - Freda Edmondson
You deserve all the plaudits you have received.
2019 DANIEL ROBINSON CUP RUNNERS-UP
