Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - MOTORS - By Jon Batham tms-sport@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

DAVE Ed­wards was the big win­ner at Amer­sham Bowls Club’s fi­nals day.

Ed­wards car­ried off a hat-trick of tro­phies, the first com­ing in the hand­i­cap fi­nal where he saw off the chal­lenge of Eric Sher­lock.

He then teamed up with Pam Sawtell to claim top prize in the mixed pairs, be­fore join­ing forces with triples team-mates Brian Hone and John Cul­ley to com­plete his tre­ble at the ex­pense of Peter Bray, Ge­off Beale and Robin Eddy.

The much-prized sin­gles crowns went to Jim Saun­ders and Anne Be­g­ley as they beat Howard Brown and Joy Spicer re­spec­tively.

Sher­lock, mean­while, got com­pen­sa­tion for his hand­i­cap fi­nal de­feat by tak­ing the men’s pairs in company with Des Grace, but there was more dis­ap­point­ment for Eddy as he lost the men’s novices fi­nal to Colin Wil­lis.

Sawtell’s hopes of a sec­ond ti­tle on the day were quashed when she and part­ners Neil Evi­son and Ge­off Beale lost out in the mixed triples to John and Sheila Bar­ber and Beryl Steane.

In the other ladies com­pe­ti­tions, Mar­garet Strick­land took the Novices ti­tle beat­ing Linda English, Pauline Shep­hard beat Mar­ion Hext in the hand­i­cap fi­nal and Pat Bernard and Van Vu­uren were the pairs vic­tors at the ex­pense of Jen­nie Brook and Diana Bas­sett.

Mean­while, Cap­tain’s Shield win­ners for 2014 were Ged Putt and Pam Hunt after wins over Ian Lee and El­iz­a­beth Gil­liott.
