They lost 27-20 to Hitchin-based Riverain’s Devon Cooper (14) and Rachel Tremlett (17) who went on to take the title at Melton Mowbray.

Simpson and Bellamy dropped a seven on the eighth end and found themselves 23-10 down after 13 ends.

Although they fought back with spirit, it was in truth a damage limitation exercise and the Riverain teenagers held on to win.

Simpson and Bellamy were both members of the England team that contested the recent women’s home international series in Llanelli.
