Ash­ford Rail’s Mo Hayes and Anne Rut­land helped Kent Ladies clinch a place in the semi-fi­nals of the Johns Tro­phy with a 118-103 win over Sur­rey in the Re­gional Fi­nal at Wor­thing Pavil­ion on Satur­day. Hayes was a mem­ber of skip Jane Cogle’s rink who won 27-11, while Rut­land helped Ann Har­ri­son’s quar­tet to an 18-4 suc­cess. Kent now face Glouces­ter­shire at Leamington Spa on Satur­day, Au­gust 5, while Lin­colnshire – their con­querors 12 months ago – meet York­shire. Mean­while, Kent’s men hope to join them when they face Buck­ing­hamshire on a neu­tral green at Egham in the quar­ter-fi­nals of the Mid­dle­ton Cup on Satur­day. In club matches, Rail’s Adam Var­ley, Gary Owen and Carl Ak­ers will meet Neve Sam­son, Paul Hunter and Gra­ham Wil­liams in the Club Triples fi­nal on Septem­ber 3. Twelve teams en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion, with both Rail triples get­ting through with four wins and a draw. Rail were 88-52 win­ners over Bid­den­den in a four­rink mixed triple.

Rail beat Ham­street 105-81 in a six-rink mixed triple friendly, win­ning three and draw­ing the other. Tony Antino, Brian Saxon and Clive Allen claimed best rink hon­ours, with a 23-4 win. Denise Ross­ing­ton, M.Pear­son and G. Gil­bert (23-14) chalked up the best of Ham­street’s two wins. Poor weather re­duced Ten­ter­den’s lat­est Weald League matches to 12 ends each.
