Sidmouth Bowling Club watched their very own Jill Bishop play on to secure a win in yet another round of the National Champion of Champions competition last week, writes Susie Bonnell.

Jill was playing Sue Cridland from Hemyock in an evening game at Sidmouth and with two high quality players a close contest was anticipated.

Both ladies got off to a very good start, determined to be the first one to score 21 shots to secure a win!

Despite a major hiccup - the sprinklers developed a mind of their own and soaked everyone - the two ladies were not deterred and, after a very short break, played on to decide the winner. Jill pulled ahead, winning the match 21 shots to 13 shots.

Jill now awaits a date to play her next opponent - Sarah Vinnicombe from Torquay - in what will be the final round in the Devon/Cornwall area.
