A TOP rink win of 33-6 from Da­gan Burt, Denise New­port and Bob Dod­ding­ton helped Richings Park Bowls Club ham­mer Lady­gate 97-58 in Sun­day’s friendly.

This fol­lowed a nar­row 92-86 de­feat to Cip­pen­ham the pre­vi­ous day, in which two Richings rinks – Tony Davies, Diane Bowd and Robert Mathews (20-12), and Jackie An­drews, Stephen Page and Roger Sprules (19-11) – both won by eight points.

Richings also took two points to West Eal­ing’s one in their Ad Fin League clash, hav­ing won 34-29 over­all thanks to Sprules, Colin Caw­ley and Jeff Ja­cobs’ 25-9 win in the home leg.

This fol­lows other Ad Fin wins over Court Park (31-23) and Den­ham (39-22).

There was an un­ex­pected 84-83 win over Den­ham in which Richings lost on four out of five rinks, but squeezed an over­all victory thanks to a re­sound­ing 26-9 tri­umph for Put­tock, Caw­ley and Dod­ding­ton.

They pulled off a sim­i­lar trick against Egham, los­ing on three out of five rinks but win­ning the other two em­phat­i­cally – not least Caw­ley, Ja­cobs and Da­gan Burt’s 27-14 suc­cess – to score a nar­row 94-90 win over­all.

Chal­font St Giles were seen off 72-67 in the Bucks Plate, thanks in no small part to Dod­ding­ton, Burt and Simon Ed­wards’ 21-9 rink win, and also 70-52 in a Thames Val­ley League match, where Page, Masters and John An­drews top scored 28-11.

Richings won two of the four rinks in their 75-67 de­feat to Wexham – the best be­ing Cyril Dean, Athena Caw­ley and Gary Masters’ 22-17 victory.

How­ever, an 18-7 rink win for Caw­ley, Bar­bara Tal­bot and John An­drews was not enough in the friendly against Har­ling­ton, as Richings went down 67-43

And there was only one tri­umph in their 73-55 re­verse to Fass­nidge, that be­ing Dod­ding­ton, Pam Sprules and Sue Put­tock’s 19-17 rink win.
