All’s well for Hack­wells

Staines Informer - - SPORT - Bowls

ASHFORD play­ers have been busy in the Bowls Eng­land com­pe­ti­tions – but with rather vary­ing for­tunes.

In the Mixed Pairs, Wendy Bay­ley and Ash­ley Tan­ner lost 21-17 to Steve and Kay Stock­ley from Par­sons Green.

But it was a dif­fer­ent story in the Mixed Fours as Bay­ley, June Goulds, Tan­ner and Rob Hack­well tri­umphed 18-15 over fel­low Ashford club­mates Mick De­laney, Flo Mann, Mar­ion Bush­nell and Matt Lar­man.

There was an­other 18-15 suc­cess, this time in the Fam­ily Pairs, as Richard and Rob Hack­well won against club-mates Cliff and Ash­ley Tan­ner but they went out 2710 in the next round to Ron and Nor­man Wor­ley from north Lon­don.

Liz Dut­ton was the Ladies Cham­pion of Cham­pi­ons, beat­ing Ann Hal­l­i­day of Cam­bridge Park 21-10.

In the Ladies Se­nior Pairs, Sally Wood­head and Dut­ton lost 27-13.

The crush­ing de­feat was handed out by a pair who, given the re­sult, in­cluded the rather aptly named Dawn Slaugh­ter.

In the Middlesex county com­pe­ti­tions, an all-Ashford tus­sle saw Cliff Tan­ner and Rob Hack­well get the bet­ter of Keith Robin­son and De­laney, 22-15.

Ron Searle and Lar­man were 26-14 win­ners at Sun­bury while in a Middlesex Ladies event, an­other match in­volv­ing Ashford teams saw Jill Stan­ton, Bay­ley and Goulds pip Flo Mann, Ca­role Daines and Bush­nell 18-17.

In the Rich­mond & Barnes League, Ashford pre­vailed in all four rinks with an over­all score of 81-39 against NPL, with the top rink be­ing Robin­son, Den­nis Cliff Tan­ner, De­laney and Rob Hack­well 25-10.

Ted­ding­ton ex­celled in win­ning on all three rinks at Ashford in the R&B League with the best re­sults com­ing from John Gam­mon, Bob Odell, De­laney and Tan­ner.

In an­other county game, Bush­nell, Sally Wood­head and Bay­ley played for Middlesex in the Johns Tro­phy de­feat by Buck­ing­hamshire.

For the men, Hack­well and Lar­man were in the vic­to­ri­ous Ashford side against Sus­sex in an en­ter­tain­ing Mid­dle­ton Cup match.
