KA­VANAGH’S FIRST FOR CLUB

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

MOR­GAN Ka­vanagh has be­come the first ever Chal­font St Giles Bowls Club mem­ber to en­ter the County U25 Sin­gles com­pe­ti­tion.

The 16-year-old Mor­gan played a 20-year-old from Iver Heath and put up an ex­cel­lent per­for­mance be­fore go­ing down 21-18, but gained valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence and con­fi­dence.

Mean­while, Pam Dyer, Dave Hard­ing and Tony Batkins bowled the top rink (179) as Chal­font won a friendly at Wind­sor & Eton 89-84, which was fol­lowed by a 78-61 friendly win at Rick­mansworth RBL.

A third friendly win, 81-57 at home to Cip­pen­ham, came partly cour­tesy of Mag­gie Read, Michael Facey and Bill Bowler’s best rink (22-11), but a fourth friendly, against Ger­rards Cross, ended in a 122-85 de­feat.

There was a soli­tary shot dif­fer­ence in a 16-15 Burn­ham Plate de­feat to Broad­way, and losses both home and away, in each case by three shots, in the Vi Trun­dell re­verse to Iver Heath.

There was also a close en­counter against Amer­sham in the Three Coun­ties League, in which Chal­font were win­ning on all rinks with only a few ends to go, but ended up los­ing 99-95.
