Pioneers’ heavy loss

AMERSHAM Bowls Club declared two highest winning rinks from their 33-21 win over Chesham Pioneers last Wednesday.
Norman Wilson, Ann Cambrook and Peter Bray, and Meg Wilson, Brian Drew and David Balderson, both had the same shot and end difference and were impossible to separate.
That same day, Amersham played a friendly at Kitcheners, who were looking to avenge a defeat earlier in the season.
With one end to go, Amersham were leading by seven shots, but thereafter came a reversal of fortunes and Kitcheners ran out 65-63 winners, with top rink for Amersham Neal Evison, Margaret Sherlock and Howard Brown.
There was also a double fixture the following day, with the men losing their last match of the season away to Gerrards Cross 83-65, despite winning on one rink through Ian Attley, John Brooks and John Barber, and drawing on the other.
By way of contrast, the ladies played their final fixture of the season against Hemel Hempstead and won 45-38, with the best rink from Marian Hext, Pam Hunt and Ann Parker.
Earlier in the week, Amersham completed a double over Potten End in a match in which the score fluctuated significantly, and with Potten on the verge of victory with two end left.
However, a grandstand finish fell in favour of Amersham, who took the game 69-63, with Betty Steane, John Brooks and David Balderson taking top rink honours.
