Men get brag­ging rights


Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

THE men won the battle of the sexes in Ger­rards Cross Bowls Club’s Ladies ver­sus Gents chal­lenge match – but only with a lit­tle help from the ladies.

With the gents team short, the ladies lent them Shirley Mur­rell and Joyce Lee­son, who helped the men to victory.

It com­pleted a good week for the men, who trav­elled to Bas­sets­bury Manor and won all four triples, with Bob Lee­son, Tim Coles and David Grieve top-scor­ing by 16 shots, while 11 club mem­bers were in­vited for county tri­als for se­lec­tion to Bucks’ Mid­dle­ton Cup team.

This fol­lowed a 90-60 win at Richings Park, in which the top triple was Mar­jorie Wane, De­nis Ward and Ray Merry, but a first de­feat of the sea­son came at the hands of Princes Ris­bor­ough, los­ing by 110-76, de­spite a top rink from Su­san Ol­droyd, Tim Coles and Chris Poole.
