Success in two leagues
THERE was a double success for Chessvale Bowls Club in this week’s Chiltern and Thames League matches.
Freda Holt, Alan Harding and Andy Loakes were the top scorers as Chessvale edged past Loudwater 54-51. The same trio were still in fine form as Wendover were beaten 61-38, and they also won the concurrent friendly match 57-43.
Chessvale enjoyed two victories in the Three Counties League too.
The first was at Wycombe, where Pauline Loakes, Ron Nash, Brian Baker and Barry Redding were the highest winning rink in a 91-88 triumph.
They also overcame Chalfont St Giles at home, by a score of 127-79, winning on four of the five rinks. Pauline Sizmore, Dave Holt, Chris Nash and Andy Loakes were the top performers.
Chessvale won 88-65 at home to Bovingdon aided by Mae Nash, Jack Murden, Sheila Clarke and Ron Nash. They did suffer one defeat, though, with Tring coming out on top 80-67 despite the efforts of Pete Sherrock, Jean Nettleton and Pete West.
