Chesham’s away blues
FOLLOWING the previous week’s win over Wycombe, Chessvale Bowls Club’s Bucks Cup team took on Chesham and, despite winning both home rinks, lost 75-65 overall.
But they did make progress in the Vi Trundall, where Chessvale’s ladies, having also already beaten Wycombe, saw off Amersham 55-34.
The first Three Counties League match of the season at home to Harefield saw Chessvale win 115-95, with a highest winning rink from Margaret Harding, Jean Nettleton, Chris Nash and Pete Stafford, but they then went down 105-83 in the same league at Wexham, despite a top rink from Harding, Jude Cambell-Grieve, Sheila Clarke and Barry Redding.
Chesham Pioneers Partially Sighted Club were then beaten 36-28, with Christine Rance, Jean Andrews and Will Gehrig bagging the best rink.
But Chessvale lost both a Chiltern & Thames League and a friendly at Wendover.
The week ended with another Three Counties clash, this time at home to local rivals Amersham, and Chessvale again took bragging rights by winning on all rinks, but the most impressive came from Redding, Pauline Loakes, Malcolm Andrews and Brian Baker.
