On a cold wintery day, four of our intrepid girls headed down to Bath for a friendly jamboree. Whilst pitched as an U18 event, all of the teams fielded a predominantly U14 team, with Berkshire’s team comprising three U13s and an U11. Whilst Somerset outgraded Berkshire, the Wiltshire team was significantly weakened by a late board 1 withdrawal. In the first round, wins for Mia Harris and Jodie Legg gave the Berkshire girls a healthy 2/4. In rounds 2 and 3, Mia, Francesca Blackwell and Kathryn Thomas all won both games to give the team a final score of 8/12. Unfortunately, the overall strength of Somerset just about won through as they ended up winners with 10/12. However, everyone contributed to the scoreboard and the Berkshire Girls can be proud of their performances.
