Cross in Heath dou­ble


Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

GER­RARDS Cross Bowls Club hosted a county event for the first time in years when the Bucks Bowls As­so­ci­a­tion used their green to en­ter­tain Sus­sex in the U25s Home Coun­ties League.

Four Ger­rards Cross young­sters were se­lected, with Chris Poole, Michael Gomme, Ge­orge Reid and Tom McGuin­ness all per­form­ing well as Bucks scored an im­pres­sive 10-2 victory.

Some of them also fea­tured in a dra­matic eight-shot win for their club side against Iver Heath in the Na­tional Two Fours.

While John McGuin­ness’ rink (with Ge­orge Reid, Neil Far­nish and Kirk Smith) were two up at the end of their 21 ends, Alan Price’s rink were level at 18 all, but Price (with Tom McGuin­ness, David Ross and Richard Reid) took three on each of the last two ends to clinch victory.

Iver Heath were also the op­po­nents in the Bucks Cup, where the Cross put them­selves in a strong po­si­tion to qual­ify for the quar­ter fi­nals with an em­phatic 12-2, with a high­est win­ning rink com­ing from com­pris­ing Antony Par­rott, David Ross and Richard Reid.

Else­where, Shirley Mur­rell, play­ing in her first match for the club, was part of the best rink, along with Hugh Rus­sell and Mau­reen Merry, as the Cross went down nar­rowly 94-93 to Wins­dor & Eton, while a high­est win­ning rink from Joan Mar­shall, Hi­lary Wigglesworth and An­gela Davies helped se­cure a 38-24 win over Bas­sets­bury Manor.
