AN­NIVER­SARY MATCH: Che­sham Bowls Club ladies with mem­bers of Bowls Eng­land; (right) Alan Cohn won the un­badged sin­gles ti­tle on to the slen­der lead gained in the first leg, los­ing 150-92, de­spite a 24-20 win for the rink of War­ring­ton, Green, Ge­orge Fudge and Brian Wright.

This all fol­lowed the suc­cess­ful host­ing of the county fi­nals, in which Che­sham pro­duced both the men’s and women’s cham­pi­ons.

Alan Cohn won the un­badged sin­gles ti­tle with a crush­ing 21-6 win over C Far­rer from Den­ham BC – the sec­ond year run­ning a Che­sham bowler had taken the crown – while Avril Harland took the ladies sin­gles with­out even hav­ing to bowl a wood af­ter her op­po­nent had to pull out through in­jury.

There was heartache though for the ladies triples team of Char­lene Turpie, Terri Keen and Lin Wright, who suf­fered a dra­matic ex­tra end de­feat to Mar­low to lose 16-15, while there was dis­ap­point­ment too for Sue Faulks in the two-wood sin­gles, as she lost 18-9 to Wad­des­don’s Freya Spokes.
