The lady bowlers from Hertfordshire are through to national finals.

Six rinks of Herts ladies played Essex in the zone final of the John's Trophy.

This is a national competition, played in four zones in England and on neutral county greens. The venue was Chesterton Bowls Club in Cambridge. The score was close throughout the match with Herts just four shots up at 10 ends, while Herts were six shots ahead of their opponents at 20 ends.

As each rink completed the final end, the scores were totalled and with only one rink left on the green, there was just two shots difference in Herts' favour. Essex only won the end by a shot so victory went to Herts by the slimmest of margins (113-112).

Herts will now be playing in the national finals at Victoria Park, Leamington Spa, a week on Saturday (July 26) against the winning team from group one.

Both the semi-finals and finals of the John's Trophy will be played on that day.
