INTER-COUNTY FINALS SEASON 2011/2012

It was the second season in the Elite top 8 group of counties for the Ladies county team. The venue this time was Hallamshire Squash Club in Sheffield.

Team – SARAH BOWLES, SAM WARD, LUCY BEECROFT, EMMA BARNETT and KAREN HERON.

First match was against LANCASHIRE with a place in the semi-finals at stake and it was to be a close one. Wins for Beecroft and Heron set up a decider for Sam Ward at number 2 but it wasn’t to be losing out in a fifth game tie-break.
