Promising youngsters claim awards from Olympic rower
Talented pair among those receiving regional talent gongs from bronze medal winner Sarah Winckless
Pyne holding off Marcus Connor to win 3-1.
But a 3-0 defeat for Wycombe junior Freddie Evans to Phil Yearby was the signal for the formidable Aylesbury top order to roll into action, Darren Withey holding off a gritty rally by George Goodchild to complete a 3-0 score.
Further wins for Alex Preston (3-0 over Stuart Burnett) and Will John (3-1 over Mike Hallett) saw Aylesbury to a 17-4 win and kept them top, three points ahead of Gerrards Cross, both having won their first four.
Elsewhere, Uxbridge condemned Beaconsfield Lions to their fourth defeat, winning 17-6, and Holmer Green beat Chesham Bois 1b 16-6.
Division Two champions Wycombe RSC 2nds, travelled to play demoted Aylesbury and although Aylesbury’s Dave Herron (3-0) and Ian McGowan (3-1) recorded impressive victories, perennial Wycombe stars Duncan Swallow, Matt Allanson (both 3-1) and Mark Brown (3-0) clinched a 14-8 victory for Wycombe.
They join the leading pack behind leaders Chesham Bois Mavericks, who made it five out of five with a 17-6 win over Beaconsfield Tigers, and Beaconsfield Bulls, who beat Holmer Green 15-10.
Bisham continue to find the going tough in their first Division Three season, going down 18-4 at home to WSRC 4ths and 14-7 to Beaconsfield Bears.
Wins for Buckingham and Beaconsfield Trojans and a 19-0 walkover for Aylesbury 2nds mean only six points separate the top six.
In a match of 3-1 scores, WSRC 4ths beat Chesham Bois Upstarts 15-9, with wins for Wycombe’s Mark Coxon, Mattie Hewlett, and Tim Bark-Jones, and Chesham’s Tom Walter and Simon Ackers.
Wycombe Ladies 2nds also saw off Beaconsfield 15-5, with 3-0 wins for Fleur Drumer and Brenda Ede.
Helen Cardy was edged out 3-2 by Kaneetha Lian, but promoted junior Gina Mullis slogged out a 3-2 debut win over Nicole Manley.
