Unique achievement for Scotland

Scotland were crowned winners of the BIIBC Ladies’ International Series after beating England in the series title decider yesterday (Sunday).

The Scots won the Clara Johns Trophy finishing top of the table after other wins against Wales and Ireland.

England finished runners-up, Wales third and Ireland fourth.

Wales’ team captain Amy Williams was named player of the series

Scotland’s victory completes a unique achievement with Scots winning their fifth British Isles team event title in succession to hold all of the main trophies at once.

The run started at Abbeyview last March when the men’s international team won the Hilton Trophy.

It continued in January with the Under 18s winning the overall title at that event.

The Acle Trophy was the next to be collected when the Ladies’ Under 25 team won their series at Belfast.

Glasgow saw a victory on home soil in mid February for the men’s Under 25 team as they retained the Brimble Trophy.

And the triumph at Falcon IBC, Chelmsford, for the ladies’ international team sees Scotland become the first side ever to hold all five main team titles at once.
