From the top, left to right – Jo Wigman, Jo Higgins, Irene Hogg, Jackie Ogden, Fay Smith, Annette Cairncross, Hazel Chapman, (front) Rena Stratford Manager/Coach, Mary French (nee Bushell) and Rose Harris Umpire.

I met Hazel Chapman today (7.9.19) at the Bergman Osterberg Union AGM and Reunion – who is an amazing 92 year old who was reminiscing over lunch about her days playing for England and touring South Africa in 1956 with Mary French.
