Not quite a sweet end­ing for Candi

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

CHAL­FONT St Giles Bowls Club’s Candi Ivey came within a whisker of mak­ing fi­nal of the Bucks Ladies Un­badged Sin­gles at Iver Heath on Sun­day. Hav­ing won her quar­ter-fi­nal, Ivey

lost a very close semi-fi­nal 21-18. Three days ear­lier, she was part of a 26-14 win­ning away rink, along with Hazel Baker, Pam An­der­son and Denise Wil­liams, in Chal­font’s fi­nal Trun­dell League game of the sea­son against Wex­ham.

This made up for a 19-15 de­feat for the home rink, gain­ing Chal­font the over­all points, and the ladies should know soon whether they have made the quar­ters of both the Trun­dell and Burn­ham Plate.

The men have al­ready made the quar­ters of the Bucks Plate, where they faced Ched­ding­ton at home on Sun­day, but home ad­van­tage was not enough to avoid a 92-59 de­feat.

Chal­font’s promis­ing run in the Chiltern & Thames League con­tin­ued with a 63-25 win over Glory Mill, in which they emerged com­fort­able win­ners on all the three triples, the best com­ing from Baker, Mike An­der­son.

A top rink of 33-11 from Pam An­der­son, Mag­gie Read and Pat McKay helped the ladies to a 62-42 friendly win over Amer­sham, but the men went down 104-74 in their friendly against Berkham­sted, their one win­ning rink com­ing via Roy Pound, Barry Dyer and Bernard Bai­ley.

There was also a mixed friendly against Stoke Po­ges which Chal­font lost nar­rowly 81-80, but they did at least have a top rink in Rose Kirby, Arthur Thomas and Bob Baker. Alder­ton and John
