CHAL­FONT St Giles Bowls Club per­formed an im­pres­sive turn­around against Des­bor­ough on Sun­day, hav­ing lost the away match to them heav­ily back in May.

A top rink from Mag­gie Read, Graeme Richards and Nick Ni­cholls (25-9) was one of four out of five Chal­font won on the day to helped Chal­font tri­umph in the home leg com­fort­ably and 107-63 over­all.

They will be hop­ing for a sim­i­lar re­ver­sal against Pin­ner, against whom they lost the away leg 98-69 last Tues­day, with the home leg to come in Septem­ber.

Read was once again in the top rink, along with Liz Bald­win and Rob Kirby (17-9), while there was a nar­row miss from Denise Wil­liams’ team, who pulled back from 11-6, only to be pipped at the end 16-15.

Wil­liams had some­thing to smile about against Che­sham ladies, how­ever, as she led her rink to a 21-13 win – one of two out of three rinks Chal­font chalked up for a 60-53 over­all vic­tory.

But there was a 99-79 de­feat at Bas­sets­bury Manor in the Three Coun­ties League, de­spite wins on two rinks.

Chal­font also en­ter­tained the Pi­o­neers, a sight-im­paired group based in Che­sham, and while the hosts won and had a top rink via Rose Kirby, Bill Bowler and Graeme Richards, the re­sult was less im­por­tant than their op­po­nents’ abil­ity to over­come their im­pair­ment and en­joy the sport.
