Thank you for coming along and getting the season underway

We were delighted for Ella Crouch and Neve Dawson who were both selected for the Devon Belles, the Devon county team that played for the Amy Rose Bowl at Leamington Spa. The Belles did very well, only losing in a semi-final after an extra end to the eventual winners.
