Inter County Competitions

Bucks v London

On Sunday 14th October, Bucks travelled to  Croydon to play London in the return leg of the Inter County Competition, hoping to consolidate their success of their previous game against them at Handy Cross. However, London had other ideas, and began well, winning one of  the singles and one of  the pairs games. For Bucks, Paul Knight won his first game and Malcolm Warwick and Kevin Dwyer won their first pairs game so honours even at that stage.

The triples of Rosie Millard, Arnie Jaffe and Chris Millard won convincingly 26 - 7, and Ross Abram, Ann Hine and Bob Hine also won to give Bucks an additional 4 points. However, London won both fours games so at the half way stage the points were all square at 8 all.

After the break, London came out stronger winning both the singles games and one of  the pairs, but Barry Somers and Irene Roberts won 18 - 9, for another 2 points plus enough shots to get the bonus points.

Both Bucks triples won again giving them a clean sweep with all 10 points, which just left the fours to play.

London won a game, and with just one game remaining, the match was very finely balanced.

David Gander, who was feeling some what poorly, had switched from singles to the fours, but perked up to help the rest of the team of Cedron Caine, Peter Coker and Linda Coker to a fine win.

The final scores: London 202 shots and 20 points, Bucks 190 shots and 20 points. A very well deserved draw as both teams played extremeley well.

Well done to both teams.  For all the scores click here:  RESULTS

The next game is Away to Hertfordshire on Sunday 21st October
