Ember’s ‘Awesome Foursome’ – Jackie Cornwell, lead, Lorna Kilpatrick, 2, Linda Pillman at 3, as Sub for Mary Green, and Sylvia Jones as skip, became Surrey County Champions by winning the Surrey County Ladies Senior 4s.
Having beaten last year’s county champions in an earlier round they followed it with a spectacular win over Sutton in the semi-final by 6 shots. Sutton had a strong team with their skip, Margaret Smith, an England player, who has won county and national titles, both individually and with her lead.
In the Final Ember were up against a strong Milford team whose members also have multiple county championships under their belts. The Ember ladies won a tight, low scoring game by three shots and as a result will represent Surrey at the National Championships in Leamington, the first-round game being against Dorset at 9.30am on Wednesday 21st August. Sylvia and her team are justifiably proud of their achievements.
