THREE Andover Bowling Club members have progressed to a national competition.

The triple of Cynthia Hamilton, Jackie Kingston and Sue Milton won their County semi-final at Banister Park BC recently, having won their Area (South) final at Pirrie Park.

They won their quarter-final against a triple from Petersfield 28/9 and went on to win their semifinal against a triple from Lymington 17/9.

This puts them through to the National competitions at Royal Leamington Spa this month, where they will meet top players from around the country.

The club has not had any ladies achieve such an accolade for a number of years. Cynthia and Jackie were awarded their Hampshire County badges after getting their County points in 2015.
