On a wet and windy day at Cheltenham, the result of a really well contested match all came down to the last game, being played far away from the Clubhouse on lawn 4, where Nottingham's Ian Draper (sitting apparently comfortably on peg and penult) was leading by a long way, only for Bristol's Jill Hathaway (little by little) to fight her way back into it, but she was eventually thwarted by time ...

Nottingham will now face Southport in the Sem-Final, with Woking to face eitherWatford or Enfield in the other.
