Cross brag­ging rights

BOWLS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

DOU­BLE brag­ging rights were achieved by Ger­rards Cross Bowls Club this week when they knocked Bucks neigh­bours Che­sham out of the Na­tional Top Club com­pe­ti­tion and Na­tional Two Fours.

Not only that, but the Na­tional Top Club KO was achieved by way of a 5-0 clean sweep, with Che­sham con­ced­ing the game dur­ing the triples, with Dun­can Gauld, David Simp­son and Kirk Smith in an unas­sail­able po­si­tion.

Neil Far­nish and John McGuin­ness al­ready had the two wood and four wood sin­gles in the bag and Alan Price and Antony Par­rott had con­firmed vic­tory in the pairs, while Michael Gomme, Si­mon Cobb, David Ross and Richard Reid had tri­umphed in the fours.

In the Na­tional Two Fours, McGuin­ness’ rink, which in­cluded Far­nish, Simp­son and Smith, won con­vinc­ingly, as did Price with Ross, Reid and Tom McGuin­ness, with the over­all score 50-12 to the Cross.

The ladies’ team of An­gela Davies, Mau­reen Merry, Mar­garet Poole and Mary Smith also had an em­phatic win against Amer­sham in the Burn­ham Plate, but they also had just the one win­ning rink – that of Sue Dwyer, Joyce Leeson and Joyce Lud­ford – in a friendly de­feat to Mar­low. Fi­nally, five triples took part in the club’s own cap­tain ver­sus vice-cap­tain’s match, with vic­tory go­ing to the stand-in vice-cap­tain Bob Leeson, who also skip­pered the high­est rink with Jan­ice Rus­sell and Hugh Rus­sell.
