St Andrews bowler Becky McMillan, partnered by Clevedon’s Laura Holden retained their Somerset County Junior Girls’ pairs title.

Becky McMillan, of St Andrews, partnered Clevedon’s Laura Holden to their second successive Somerset County Junior Girls’ pairs title.

The game ended in confusion, because the pair and their opponents, McMillan’s clubmate Imogen Cracknell and Yeovil’s Emily Corner, thought that the final was over 21 ends, when it should have ended at 18.

After 18 ends, McMillan and Holden led 21-18, but play carried on for three more ends, after which their teenage opponents had “won” 23-22.

Their celebrations were cut short when it was pointed out that all county junior pairs games are played over 18 ends. County competitions secretary Brian Pocock ruled that the 18-end result should stand, making the older duo champions.

On Saturday, both Imogen Cracknell and Becky McMillan were in the Somerset team who beat Wiltshire at Clevedon to reach the regional final of the national Johns Trophy. They play Gloucestershire at Chew Stoke in that tie on Saturday.
