DOUBLE FOR AMERSHAM
AMERSHAM Bowls Club enjoyed a double victory over Loudwater on Saturday, beating them in the Chiltern & Thames League and then in a friendly for good measure.
In the league match, despite only winning one triple, thanks to the efforts of Margaret Sherlock, David Balderson and Jim Saunders, and losing two, Amersham ran out overall winners 53-45. The friendly, a mixed triple which was a somewhat closer affair, was won by Marian Hext, Joy Spicer and Neal Evison 13-12.
Wins on two rinks, including a highest scoring effort from Val Newton, Elizabeth Gillott and Diana Bassett, and defeat on the other meant a 56-42 overall win for Amersham ‘s ladies in their friendly against Flackwell Heath.
The men also tasted success in their friendly against Gerrards Cross today over four triples, Amersham winning on three rinks of the four rinks and 68-60 overall.
To complete a successful week, there was also a five-shot 66-61 friendly win over Rickmansworth RBL.
