Edgy af­fair in the fi­nal

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

CHE­SHAM’s C team’s vic­tory over Stony Strat­ford was ar­guably the best re­sult of the week.

Thanks to a last-gasp win­ning shot from Sue Springell, it came in the mixed over-60s dou­ble rink Buck­ing­hamshire/ Ox­ford­shire Zone Fi­nal of the Tony All­cock tro­phy.

It was a tightly fought con­test, with Sylvia War­ring­ton, Tony Strud­wick, Roger El­lis­ton and Lin Wright earn­ing a first rink score of 27-25, be­fore Terri Keen, Ge­off Den­ham, Roy Rodgers and Springell edged Che­sham (pic­tured) to the win with a score of 20-21.

Che­sham are now at home to Broad­way (Worces­ter­shire) in the area fi­nal, with a place at the Na­tional Cham­pi­onships at stake.

Ear­lier in the week, David Sills beat Neil Thomp­son 21-15 to win the County Un­badged sin­gles cham­pi­onship, cap­ping off a mag­nif­i­cent in­di­vid­ual sea­son.

Other re­sults were more mixed. He­len Fillery, Brian Cox, Lyn Birch and Roy Rodgers were Che­sham’s only win­ning rink against Chiltern and Thames As­so­ci­a­tion, who won 127-103.

High Wy­combe had the up­per hand in the an­nual Benev­o­lent Cup by an ag­gre­gate score of 13 shots over two legs, de­spite a win­ning rink from Derek Pud­de­phat, Eileen Perry, Toni Nightin­gale and Nor­man Green.

How­ever, Che­sham did win at Flack­well Heath, 107-102. Mo Bai­ley, Alan Lam­min and Howard Cave im­pressed, scor­ing 18-8.
