    Johns Trophy - Quarter-Final Results

    Lincolnshire remain on track to defend the Johns Trophy, following a 38-shot victory over Nottinghamshire on Saturday (15th July).



    Lincolnshire remain on track to defend the Johns Trophy, following a 38-shot victory over Nottinghamshire on Saturday (15th July).

    This was helped largely by a 48-8 scoreline in favour of Penny Strong’s rink and a 41-10 victory for Jill Edson’s rink. Maureen Wilson’s rink also contributed strongly with a 24-8 win.

    Lincolnshire will face Norfolk in the Semi-Final after a tight 112-109 defeat of Leicestershire. Leicestershire started the stronger of the two sides, and even led by 28-shots at 10 ends, however a spirited fightback from the Norfolk side secured their semi-final spot.

    Kent are still on track to make amends for their defeat to Lincolnshire in last year’s final, after a 118-103 victory over Surrey. They will face Gloucestershire in the semi-final who defeated Somerset 129-120.

    You have to go all the way back to 1949 for the last time that consecutive Johns Trophy finals were contested by the same teams, when Surrey defeated Essex in both 1948 and 1949.

    Gloucestershire have only reached the Final once before, and interestingly, it could be a repeat of the 1991 final against Norfolk.

    Full results from the Johns Trophy Quarter-Finals, that took place on Saturday 15th July, can be found below:

    Lincolnshire beat Nottinghamshire 148-110
    Rink scores (Lincolnshire names first);
    O Wells lost to A Duckworth 17-23, C Smith lost to S Offler 10-31, M Wilson bt R Lewis 24-8, L Mountain lost to T Wombell 8-30, P Strong bt I Wright 48-8, J Edson bt E Adams 41-10.      

    Norfolk beat Leicestershire 112-109
    Rink scores (Norfolk names first):
    A Barker lost to L Green 9-28, B Whitehead lost to S Sharpe 12-18, J Kirby bt D Hurst 24-19, C Webb bt C Massie 28-7, J Devitt bt JL Winch 25-15, S Curtis lost to C Dixon 14-22.

    Kent beat Surrey 118-103
    Rink scores (Kent names first):
    J Cogle bt D Souter 27-11, J Banes bt S Maylin 19-18, J Parker bt P Bourne 19-16, S Hazell drew with M Smith 19-19, E Simpson lost to P Garden 16-25, A Harrison bt C Stevens 18-14.

    Gloucestershire beat Somerset 129-120
    Rink scores (Gloucestershire names first):
    L Collin bt J Walmsley 25-23, R Hughes lost to E Amery 18-23, K Gent drew with S Branfield 20-20, J Scott lost to L Holden 22-28, J Howes bt K Hembrow 23-14, J Sheward bt J Young 21-12.

    Therefore, the four teams that will contest the Semi-Finals of the Johns Trophy are Gloucestershire, Kent, Lincolnshire and Norfolk with the Semi-Final draw being as follows:

    Lincolnshire vs Norfolk
