CHAL­FONT ST GILES INTO QUAR­TERS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

THE ladies’ Burn­ham Plate squad at Chal­font St Giles Bowls Club have topped their group and progress to the quar­ter fi­nal, which will be played at home to Loud­wa­ter next Sun­day.

In the Thames Val­ley League, Chal­font share the points with Egham de­spite an over­all 68-49 de­feat, hav­ing won both away rinks but lost both home ones, the best one be­long­ing to Nick Nicholls, Dave Hard­ing and Arthur Thomas.

There was a 72-44 de­feat to Iver Heath in the same com­pe­ti­tion in which Chal­font man­aged only one win­ning rink – that of Mike Alder­ton, Tony Batkins and Rob Kirby – and took two points to Iver’s eight.

It was a sim­i­lar story in the Three Coun­ties League, where Chal­font went down 102-88 over­all.

Kirby was again in the win­ning rink (24-13), along with Chris Moir, Lynda James and Staff Bur­bridge.

Kirby’s third top-scor­ing rink of the week was a nar­row one (18-17) and came with Joyce Cripp and Colin Richards on a 110-57 friendly de­feat to Berkham­sted, while Chal­font were also sec­ond best against Ayles­bury Town, los­ing 117-78 de­spite Bob­bie Richards, Chris Pound and Al­lan Rum­ble’s high­est scor­ing rink (21-13).

But there was at least an 82-75 friendly win over Lady­gate, in which Chal­font came from be­hind to claim vic­tory, thanks in no small part to a best rink of 21-10 from Moir, Hard­ing and Tim Bald­win.
