A SUPERB recovery saw Cowley clinch victory at Loudwater on Saturday.

After a poor start Cowley came back to win three of the four rinks and take the tie.

Run Dunkley, Les Webber, Teresa French and Don Maylin top-scored 22-13, while Michael Webber, Eileen Maylin, Doris Healey and Dawn Rooks edged home 25-20.

Despite a 25-15 loss for Joyce O'Connor, Berry French, Doreen Heath and Roy Healey, Pat Houghton, Syd Stone, Leon Jones and Den Gorman's 25-16 victory saw them win overall.

They followed that up with a hard-fought 64-46 success at Yiewsley the following day. Cowley won two of the three rinks with Audrey Mogan, Doris Healey, Jim Norquoy (26-12) and Pat Houghton, Heath and Don Maylin (25-12) victorious. They also triumphed in one of the two friendly rinks, Doris Hawkins, Barry French and Stan Driver thrashing their opponents 31-8.


IT WAS mixed fortunes for the French family's Hayes Bowls Club debut against Metropolitan Police this week.

While Barry French was part of a team which lost 21-10 in the opening rink, Theresa helped reduce the arrears with a 16-14 triumph in rink two with S Wilson, K Smith and J Ashton.

However, that was as good as it got for Hayes, and despite H Booth, I Grant, B Belcher and K Smith drawing 19-19, they lost the other three rinks on their way to a 131-93 reverse


COURT Park Bowls Club swept aside Yiewsley 53-49 after recovering from a poor start.

They lost the first two rinks 17-19 and 18-19 before the trio of B Ransom, A Baker and J Haw secured the third 18-11.

Park lost friendly matches to Deane Park 81-55 (best rink 21-21) and Concorde 118-93, with the winning Park rinks being 28-12 and 19-18.


MIKE Hulbert, Kevin Worboys and Paul Darius led the way as Mill Bowls Club stayed on course to regain the Bidgood Division One title with a hard-fought win over Eastcote.

They triumphed 24-21 against Albert Dummett, Peter Hawthorne and Jim Langley, but David Garside, Dennis Stanbury and Tony Jones were edged out 21-20 by Ted Brothers, Chris Daykin and Colin Williams in rink two.

However, it couldn't stop them running out 44-41 winners overall.

Elsewhere, they lost three out of five rinks against Bessingby, but still emerged 92-83 victors.

Thumping wins from Betty Stanbury, Mike Hulbert and Tony Jones (24-7) and Martin Feuer, Bill Seabridge and Syd Perrin (29-11) saved their blushes.

And they made it a hat-trick of triumphs with a 68-57 success over St. Bernards.

Peter Peters, John Haoribrook and Pail Darius (23-12) top-scored.
