David Ross and Richard Reid led all the way to a fine win in the pairs (21-16) and Dun­can Gauld, Neil Far­nish and Chris Poole took the triples crown against Bletch­ley Town (18-17), which needed an um­pire’s de­ci­sion.

Richard Reid got into a strong po­si­tion in the sin­gles at 14-7 but was caught and passed by Mal­colm Drage of Bletch­ley Town (21-15).

In the U25 sin­gles, Tom McGuin­ness was de­feated 21-12 by Phil Gre­gory, of Princes Ris­bor­ough, who also de­feated Neil Far­nish in the Two Woods fi­nal (17-11).

John McGuin­ness, who is in Com­mon­wealth Games ac­tion this week, reached round five of the Na­tional Cham­pion of Cham­pi­ons com­pe­ti­tion with a 21-16 win over Mark Sykes, of Ban­bury Bor­ough. He now faces Drage; and both will rep­re­sent Bucks in the na­tional fi­nals at Leamington Spa.
