Oxfordshire's Katherine Hawes helped England retain their British Isles Women’s International Series title in Jersey.

Having received a late call-up into the team, the Oxford City & County star played her part as England won all four of their matches against Ireland, Scotland, Jersey and Wales on Les Creux’s artificial green.

Hawes said: “I was quite pleased with it being the first time on an artificial surface, and I was at No 3 whereas I have played at No 2 before.

“I thought I did quite well and the other people in my team did too.”

England opened up with a 120-108 win over Ireland, with Hawes featuring in a 21-12 rink victory skipped by Lincolnshire’s Penny Strong, alongside Worcestershire’s Sue Davies and Derbyshire’s Jo Skelton against Barbara Cameron.

Hawes and her rinkmates were then pipped 16-15 by Scotland skip Lorna Smith, but England won 108-102 to make it two wins out of two.

An emphatic 140-86 victory over Jersey followed with the four including Hawes regaining the winning thread with a 21-12 success over skip Helen Greechan.

England clinched the title by walloping Wales 143-97, with Hawes’s side beating skip Judith Wason 21-15.

Hawes added: “I think we did very well and we were obviously pleased by the result.

“We only lost one game by one, so that was nice from a personal point of view.”
