KAVANAGH’S FIRST FOR CLUB
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.
