WALES (represented by Susan Ingham - Aida Aris,
Maggie Pierce - Gilly Clench, Diane Kurbalija - Liz
Commins, NPC Linda Greenland) won the 2015
Lady Milne Trophy - the match between the
women's teams of the home nations - by a small
margin, with England second and Scotland third.
The event took place from 17th to 19th April in
Although Wales only won two of their five matches
they picked up enough VPs to claim the trophy.
Wales finished on 56.92, with England scoring 54.71
and Scotland 53.72. What was remarkable was that
the teams that ended first and second were both
languishing at the bottom of the table before staging
a tremendous come-back on the last day.
As hosts England were permitted to enter two
teams, and the EBU team finished fourth. Like both
England and Scotland - and indeed Northern
Ireland who finished fifth - the EBU team won
three of their five matches. It was the margins of
victory (or defeat) which decided the final placings.
The teams were: England: Sally Brock - Anita
Sinclair; Gillian Fawcett - Jane Moore; Catherine
Jagger - Sarah Teshome; NPC David Burn.
EBU: Marietta Andree - Janet Cahm; Hannah
Cornfield - Kath Stynes; Sarah O'Connor - Anne
Rosen; NPC Simon Cochemé. r
