Bar­ber’s a cut above the rest in Lewis Cup

BOWLS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

JOHN BAR­BER came out on top as Amer­sham Bowls Club’s mem­bers com­peted for the Lewis Cup on Satur­day.

Bar­ber saw off all-com­ers, in­clud­ing Linda English in the fi­nal, to get his hands on the sil­ver­ware.

Team-wise though there was no joy for Amer­sham 24 hours later in their Three Coun­ties League clash away to Hare­field.

The vis­i­tors went down 97-80 de­spite win­ning two of the five rinks, an im­prove­ment on the re­verse fix­ture in which they were white­washed.

Their top rink com­prised the quar­tet of Jenny Brooks, Peter Bray, Ged Putt and Anne Be­g­ley.

In other ac­tion this week, Amer­sham beat Kitch­en­ers in a five mixed triples match de­spite win­ning only two rinks.

Their victory owed much to a re­mark­able 31-2 suc­cess for the trio of Va­lerie New­ton, in her first match for the club, David Balder­son and Kevin Dwyer.

How­ever, the three triples match at Hemel was lost 52-43.
