EUROPEAN CHAMPS: The captains before Chalfont St Giles BC’s friendly against Benavista in Spain Contributed CHALFONT St Giles may have regretted lending Stoke Poges three of their players for Sunday’s friendly – as the loaned talent helped their opponents to an 84-76 win.
Chalfont managed a single winning rink, from John Pink, Jean Jackman and Tim Baldwin.
That followed an 82-55 win over Rickmansworth RBL the previous day, where Bobbie Richards, Staff Burbridge and Mike Alderton managed a winning rink of 27-7.
Chalfont were also victorious in their annual curtain-raiser against Uxbridge, winning 70-68, with a top rink of 28-17 via Richards, Rose Kirby and Graeme Richards.
All of which followed a successful tour of Spain, where defeats to Lauro Golf, Mijas, Benavista, Benalmedena and Minaflores were not allowed to dampen the spirits, and where Hazel Baker was named Player of the Week.
