Close call for Chal­font


Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

THE bat­tle for the high­est win­ning rink in Chal­font St Giles Bowls Club’s 79-73 de­feat to Den­ham on Satur­day could hardly have been closer.

Chal­font had three win­ning triples with just one shot’s dif­fer­ence and two with the same num­ber of ends won, but the top rink was even­tu­ally given to Mau­reen Bur­bridge, Dave Hard­ing and Tim Tim­ber­lake, who won 19-18.

This was fol­lowed by a 106-66 Three Coun­ties League de­feat at Bas­sets­bury Manor on Sun­day, where two win­ning rinks at least earned Chal­font four league points, the best of which was a 24-17 tri­umph for Nick Ni­cholls, Hu­bert Cox, Hazel Baker and Mike Alder­ton.

There was another Three Coun­ties de­feat ear­lier in the week to Amer­sham, where again Chal­font took four points from two win­ning rinks, the best be­ing Flora Alder­ton, Jean Jack­man, Dave Hard­ing and John An­der­son’s 27-9 tri­umph, but the over­all score­line was a 100-82 re­verse.

The week had at least started on a win­ning note with a 47-41 vic­tory over Che­sham Broad­way in the Chiltern & Thames League, pick­ing up eight points to their op­po­nents’ two.
