Sidmouth bowler Jane Painter is the new Devon County Ladies’ Unbadged Singles champion, writes Susie Bonnell.

Painter was joined on the journey to the final at Newton Abbot last Sunday (September 7) by a large number of travelling supporters.

In the final Painter was up against Tiverton bowler Angie Hill.

Painter has been in great form this season and started confidently and began to pile on the shots advantage.

The target for both players was 21 points and so, with a 19-8 advantage Painter was closing in the coveted title.

And she mounted something of a comeback to take her score to 13 before Painter banked the last two shots she required to be crowned ‘Queen of the green”!
