Park scrape through
PAIRS duo Stephen Page and Bob Doddington scored three shots on the last end as Richings Park Bowls Club scraped through 53-52 against Denham in the Thames Valley 1-2-3.
Their 24-16 win over Calvin Farrer and Ray Newman proved crucial as Robert Matthews had lost 21-13 to Garry Miller in the singles, while Simon Edwards, Claud Stimpson and John Newton had only edged out Jo O’Hara, Steve Moore and Dave Scarsbrook 16-15 in the triples.
However, despite a resounding 31-15 rink win for Stimpson, Gary Masters and Stephen Page, there was an overall 80-68 defeat to Iver Heath in the Thames Valley League after they lost the other three rinks.
A highest rink win of 21-11 paved the way for a 73-66 friendly win over Hayes, while a 38-25 win over Court Park kept Richings top of the Ad Fin North Section.
