Jayne won two silvers at the World Bowls Championships in 1988, in the women's triples with Norma Shaw and Barbara Fuller and the fours with Shaw, Fuller and Mary Price.
She wore England's colours at the Commonwealth Games in 1990 and 1994 – it was in her first appearance, in Auckland, when she partnered Price to bronze in the women's pairs.
