Well I've only gone and done it after 29 tears of playing, won the All England Ladies comp today in Reading! It was a great day on some very tricky tables, Jean and I ended equal on games with me winning on points scored, so well done to Jean too.

About bloody time, you deserve it after all your hard work, not just for becomimg one of the best ladies players around but also your enthusiasm for the game and everything you do for Redhill and Surrey Bar Billiards.
Thank you Clive and Martin for your thoughtful inspiring comments, still buzzing and can't quite believe it! Love playing so much, hope this is the start of many more. Also love the pic Clive, where have you been hiding that one? x
Would like to add my congrats to Denise. I think its 5 lost nationals ladies finals (4 in the last couple of years). It takes a great deal of guts to bounce back from those disappointments to keep going and eventually win one.
Hopefully there will be more to come now!

Thank you Nigel for your comments, true it has been disheartening, especially last year, but my determination kept me going. Just want to get better and better so definitely hope there are more wins to follow! xx
