County sides are chosen

Norfolk manager Lianne Mills has named her teams for the opening Inter-County Championship games against Northants Premier and Cambridgeshire on September 25.

Sheila Bragg of Connaught has been unveiled as the new Norfolk county team captain with Sprowston's Peter Smart as vice-captain. Former Oxfordshire ace Trevor Brown of Bob Carter will make his Norfolk debut in the singles against Northants with Halvergate's David Lamb.

The addition of Brown can only help a team who struggled too often last year, while Lamb has gained valuable experience since becoming an England regular.

Oliver Allen and Mike Boswell; Triples Mark Linsdell, Nigel Willard, Chris Mann; Andy Stratton, George Clarke, John Turner; Rinks Mikey George, Jean Woods, Debbie Phillips, Brian Saunders; Jon Sparham, Kim Bridge, Bob Oatway, Melvin Woods.
