The Bucks U14 girls’ team of Lauren Armstrong, Emily Honor, Sophie Ivansky, Isabelle Marshall, Darcey Roe and Emma Savage were in action at the Aegon County Cup Regional Qualifier in Malvern earlier this month.

They won their first round against Hereford and Worcestershire 6-0 before victory over Shropshire by the same scoreline saw them through to the final.

The final against Warwickshire went to 3-3, meaning it was all down to a championship tie-break, which Bucks took 10-8. They have now qualified for the National finals in Nottingham.

Bucks County 14&U girls’ captain John Cavill said: “The only reason we won the regional qualifier is because of our team spirit. The girls gelled really well together both on and off the court and as a captain this makes everything so much easier.

“I was very pleased with how the girls conducted themselves on the court, showed determination and held their nerve when the big points arrived. We are all looking forward to Nottingham this weekend where it is the second year in a row that we’ve made it to the national finals, which is a great achievement.”
