BOWLS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

JOAN Mar­shall was a two-time win­ner at Ger­rards Cross Bowls Club’s fi­nals day – held over two week­ends due to the club’s suc­cess in reach­ing three county fi­nals.

Mar­shall beat Shirley Mur­rell to win the ladies ju­nior cham­pi­onship, then teamed up with Margery Kennedy to see off Joyce Leeson and Mary Smith in the ladies pairs.

Smith re­cov­ered to over­come Mau­reen Merry in the ladies cham­pi­onship, while the men’s cham­pi­onship was won by Kevin Dwyer against Ge­orge Reid.

Reid had the con­so­la­tion of a men’s two wood win over Dun­can Gauld, while Kennedy, who lost the ladies 100pts fi­nal to Jan­ice Welsh, landed the ladies’ two wood with vic­tory over Mar­garet Poole.

It was a fam­ily af­fair in the mixed pairs, where Joyce Leeson and Bob Leeson beat Su­san Dwyer and Kevin Dwyer, while in the men’s pairs, Tony Holden and Si­mon Cobb were win­ners against Michael Gomme and Chas Sta­ple­ton.

The lat­ter duo then met in the Salinger Cup which Gomme took home, while Leeson lost the men’s 100pts fi­nal to Hug Rus­sell, and Cobb lost out to Nick Maris in the se­nior cham­pi­onship. Fi­nally, Derek Evans beat Adam Con­sta­ble in the men’s ju­nior cham­pi­onship.

Else­where, in the fi­nal of the Burn­ham Plate, the ladies team of Smith, Poole, Merry and Jill Roy­lance were con­vinc­ingly beaten by Long Cren­don, while the Chiltern & Thames League team lost in the fi­nal to Rosedale and had to set­tle for a run­ners-up tro­phy.
