Pairs’ national progress
RICHINGS Park Bowls Club duo John Norkett and Claud Stimpson have reached the fourth round of the National Pairs, while Diane Bowd, Athena Cawley, John Newton and George Nicola have made it to the third round of the National Mixed Pairs.
It has also been an impressive week for Colin Cawley, Jeff Jacobs and Bob Matthews, who won all three rinks they played as a threesome in games against Cippenham, Rosedale and Hayes.
Against Cippenham, their 31-7 triumph set the tone for a 81-48 Bucks Plate win, but despite further rink wins for the trio against Rosedale (16-10) in the Thames Valley League and Hayes (23-12) in the Ad Fin, defeats in the other leg meant Richings lost both games narrowly, 32-30 and 38-35 respectively.
Richings also beat Egham 83-71.
