ROUND-UP

Ci­ampini’s su­per seven BOWLS

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

UXBRIDGE bowls club star At­tilio Ci­ampini wrote his name into the record books this week.

Ci­ampini capped off an ab­so­lutely mag­nif­i­cent in­di­vid­ual sea­son with seven ma­jor hon­ours in 12 month’s worth of stun­ning bowls.

He claimed two Mid­dle­sex county ti­tles, the Hilling­don bor­ough sin­gles, staged a dra­matic come­back to win at the Wor­thing Open, tri­umphed at Home Coun­ties in Ox­ford, won the Hayes and Dis­trict sin­gles and skip­pered the win­ning team at the But­ton Bowl com­pe­ti­tion.

Mean­while, Hare­field Hos­pi­tal Bowl­ing Club have been crowned Three Coun­ties League Cham­pi­ons af­ter beat­ing Rosedale.

The Hayes and Dis­trict Fi­nals saw Court Park Bowls claim the Cut­tell Shield, the fours, the triples and the pairs while Uxbridge laid their hands on the sin­gles ti­tle.

Har­ling­ton Bowl­ing Club fin­ished their sea­son on a high win­ning their last mixed friendly match 54-34 away to Southall.

Sue and David Ge­orge and Alan Hooper rep­re­sented Fass­nidge as they hosted the Chiltern & Thames Mixed Triples Fi­nals Day last week, fin­ish­ing third. NIYAM Shah and Kr­ish Pa­tel’s strong open­ing part­ner­ship helped East­cote U10s lift the Sir Gubby Allen Tro­phy in their third con­sec­u­tive Lord’s ap­pear­ance in the Mid­dle­sex County Fi­nal.

Shah and K Pa­tel put to­gether a part­ner­ship of 41 runs from just four overs af­ter East­cote were put in to bat first, be­fore Aaryan Pa­tel and Jay Madan pow­ered their side to 115 runs.

And Aarav Oodit, Pranav Bha­tia, and Vivek Tha­par led the bowlers as Har­row St Mary’s reg­is­tered just 24 af­ter some ex­cep­tional open­ing bowl­ing.

Shah and K Pa­tel’s pow­er­ful stand got the even­tual vic­tors off to a bril­liant start be­fore A Pa­tel and Madan put on 34 more runs.

Aaryan Sawant hit three fours as his stand with Bha­tia lasted 24 runs, as East­cote breezed to 115 runs by the end of the in­nings.

And the score­board pres­sure told as Har­row St Mary’s strug­gled with the tenac­ity of their op­po­nents’ open­ing bowlers, scor­ing just 24 runs in re­sponse. UXBRIDGE’s Nat­u­ley Smalle claimed gold in the Aikido women’s Team Ran­dori as she com­peted in the SAF World Cham­pi­onships on the Gold Coast, Aus­tralia.

The Bri­tish Aikido As­so­ci­a­tion re­turned from the com­pe­ti­tion with their largest tro­phy haul in re­cent years.

The side earned six gold and two sil­ver medals over the two-day com­pe­ti­tion.
