It has been a good week for the Madeira ladies. In the National Topclub, the Madeira ladies successfully won their game against Leamington Spa at Olveston, writes Mary Ann Dowrick.
The ladies now enter the quarterfinals at Leamington Spa on the 12th of September. Their opponents are yet to be decided.
A few other successes include the trio of Liz Smerdon with Sue Harriott and Janine Orchard who won their game in the Devon Ladies Benevolent Triples against Barnstaple. This takes the trio to County finals day along with Angie Fish and Jan Roberts who beat their opponents from Topsham in the Over-70s pairs.
And finally, skip Sandie Cox with Nikki Fiddimore and Deirdre Norman play in the quarterfinals of the Devon Ladies Two wood triples. If successful, they will join the others on finals day. We wish all of these Madeira players good luck.
