BOWLS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

AMER­SHAM Bowls Club’s men are out of the County Cup fol­low­ing a 68-51 de­feat to Mar­low – de­spite win­ning two of the four rinks.

In the Chiltern & Thames League, there was a de­feat on all rinks to Ger­rards Cross, while against Wen­dover a brave fight­back from 12-1 down to win their rink 18-17 by David Balder­son, Diana Bas­sett and Howard Brown was scant con­so­la­tion in the end as Amer­sham lost 58-41 over­all.

In the Three Coun­ties League, an­other loss on all rinks to Chess­vale (108-74) was fol­lowed by a share of the spoils against Wexham, in which Amer­sham lost 112-92 over­all but won 3-2 on rinks, Eric Sher­lock, Pam Hunt, Pat Barnard and Anne Be­g­ley’s their best one.

A 101-98 friendly win over Wen­dover made up for the C&T de­feat to the same side, while the ladies beat Bas­set­bury Manor 48-30.

The ladies also won the first leg of the Burn­ham Plate against Chal­font St Giles 22 -12, but lost to Chess Vale in the Vi Trun­dell com­pe­ti­tion home (25-14) and away (30-20).
