Spalding’s Rebecca Simpson and Annie Dunham were part of the England team that narrowly lost the Home International Series held at Llanelli Indoor Bowls Club.

Dunham retained her place in the team at number three with skip Ellen Falkner while Simpson was making her debut for the senior side playing number two for Sophie Tolchard.

In the opening match against Wales, Dunham’s rink lost 19-17 with Simpson registering a 26-9 victory in an overall team win (121-112).

The second match against Ireland was a formality with England recording a 166-63 scoreline (Dunham 38-5 and Simpson 23-10).

That set up a final match with Scotland. Dunham’s set recorded a 19-13 win while Simpson lost 23-22. Both girls had two wins out of three.
