A NAIL-BIT­ING fin­ish which went down to the fi­nal end saw Chal­font St Giles Bowls Club win their Chiltern & Thames League en­counter at Mar­low by two shots – with Ian McCleod, Denise Wil­liams and Nick Ni­cholls bowl­ing the best rink.

There was also a 69-33 Chiltern & Thames win over Glory Mill that proved to be a much more one-sided con­test, in which Hazel Baker, Gra­ham Buchanan and Mike Alder­ton romped home for the top rink.

The ladies had a mixed week, stay­ing on course for a Burn­ham Plate quar­ter fi­nal berth with a win over Amer­sham cour­tesy of Chris Moir, Lyn Car­roll, Liz Baldwin and Mo Hard­ing, but lost nar­rowly over two legs to Stoke Poges in the Vi Trun­dell.

They also lost a friendly 69-47 to Ger­rards Cross, where the best ef­fort was a drawn rink from Baker, Flora Alder­ton and Mar­garet Tim­ber­lake, while a Chal­font team put to­gether at short no­tice ex­ited the Thames Val­ley League 1-2-3 com­pe­ti­tion fol­low­ing a de­feat to Den­ham in all three for­mats. Mean­while, Mor­gan Ka­vanagh

(pic­tured) was not the first Chal­font player to have played in the County U25s, as stated last week.

Pre­vi­ous en­trants in­clude cur­rent club spon­sor and one-time ju­nior mem­ber, Robert Cart­mell, who played dur­ing the early days of the club.
