MIXED PAIRS TRI­UMPH

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

JEAN Old­field and John Brooks emerged vic­tors as Amer­sham Bowls Club staged their Stan Mills Mixed Pairs com­pe­ti­tion on Satur­day.

Old­field and Brooks saw off 12 pairs to claim their prize, in­clud­ing the beaten fi­nal­ists Sheila Barber and Brian Drew.

There was dou­ble dis­ap­point­ment on their trav­els this week as both the Chiltern & Thames and Three Coun­ties League fix­tures were lost.

The lat­ter on Sun­day saw Amer­sham lead­ing hosts High Wy­combe by just one shot at the tea break, but there­after home ad­van­tage be­gan to tell and they went down 102-84.

Top rink for Amer­sham com­prised Peter Bray, Elizabeth Gil­lott and David Balder­son, and with another of their teams also man­ag­ing a win they still took five of the 12 league points on of­fer.

It had been a sim­i­lar story in the C&T game at Chess­vale where the hosts cap­i­talised on home ad­van­tage to win all three triples and take the game 63-34.
