TEENAGE North Mymms Bowls Club member Becky Maynard followed in her mother's footsteps and gained county honours last week.

Becky was selected as a lead in the Hertfordshire Women's Under-31 team that played at Leamington in the Amy Rose Bowl U31 Inter-County Double Rink competition.

Unfortunately, Herts lost to a strong and experienced Devon side who won the trophy last year.

Emily Fisher, another of the Welham Green club's youngsters, had also participated in the squad's training programme and was nominated as a reserve.

Mymms' men, meanwhile, visited Clarence Park and were defeated 97-61 in a five rink triples match.

Best rink for the Welham Greeners was Brian O'Neill, Alf Valentine and Geoff Moorhouse with a narrow 16-15 victory.

Captain John Penfold, Peter Stokes and Adrian Sherlock also drew their rink 17 shots each.

Saturday saw a short trip to Harperbury for a mixed triples fixture in far from pleasant weather.

Good victories on two of the five rinks were insufficient to make up the deficit and prevent defeat by eight shots in a 96-88 scoreline.

The winning cards came from Ray Jones, Jill Hefford and Iris Hall with a 28-14 victory and Ann Penfold, Barry Jackson and Bob Fowler with a 21-13 win.
