This evening we needed to win as many rinks as possible with Waddesdon picking up maximum points last week and closing the gap to 4 points between us, despite us having won our 2 games and Waddesdon only winning 1. This was to prove a tough game tonight where the luck just didn’t seem to fall our way. At home Daniel Watkins, Steve McNeill & Mark Newman were playing the better bowls but they just didn’t seem to get the run of things and ended up losing 19-13. Matthew Crick, Roger Crick & Andy Watkins had a much better evening with all 3 playing some great bowls on their way to a 31-11 win. Playing at Princes Risborough were Ian Ramsay, Eddie Chanell and Tony Osborne and they matched the score from home with a 31-11 win, whereas Josh Henly, Pete Coyne and Paul Rogers were 15-11 ahead after 15 ends but their luck ran out as they dropped 8 shots to lose 19-16.

8th June 2022 – Hazells v Long Crendon – Bucks Cup – Won 14 – 0 (95 – 45)
Tonight was an important night for us in the Bucks Cup, having won our first 3 games but with Waddesdon on level points with us, we knew that to remain top and keep the destination of group winners in our own hands we needed to pick up maximum points. At home Paul Rogers, Pete Coyne & Josh Henly put the previous weeks disappointing result behind them with a comfortable 30-6 win. Ashley Dean, Ian Ramsay & Tony Osborne had a tougher game and they went in to the last end level at 15-15 and managed to pick up a 2 for a 17-15 win and all 4 points at home. Matthew Crick, Roger Crick & Andy Watkins got off to a great start and were 14-1 ahead after 9 ends however they only won 2 more ends but they held on to the lead and won 19-14. On the other rink Daniel Watkins, Steve McNeill & Mark Newman took a few ends to get in to the game, going 7-1 down after 6 ends however on the 9th end they picked up a 6 to take the lead and from there they only lost 1 more end in the match and ran out 29-10. So we picked up the maximum 14 points and added a great 50 shots to our overall shot difference. So we now go in to next weeks final game against Aylesbury Town knowing that maximum points should give us top spot in the division and the home advantage in the quarter finals.
15th June 2022 - 6pm – Aylesbury Town - Won 12 -2 (71-61)
With the Divisional Winner prize still up for grabs we knew that maximum points tonight and a good shot difference win would secure top spot over Waddesdon, who were playing Princes Risborough. Richard Keen, Steve McNeill & Mark Newman took the early lead in their game, although by the 7th end they were just 7-6 ahead, however they then picked up a 6 followed by a 5 2 ends later to go 19-6 ahead and from there they played out the game very well and won 24-14. Despite winning the first 2 ends John Stones, Matthew Crick & Roger Crick were behind for the majority of the game and they went in to the last end 4 down and with the final bowl they had a chance to pick up the 5 they needed but Roger couldn’t take the jack back far enough and they ended up with just 2 shots and lost 14-12. Away from Home Josh Henly, Pete Coyne & Paul Rogers dropped 8 shots from the first 4 ends however by the 7th end they were 9-8 ahead and they never lost the lead again although when they dropped a 3 on the last it became a close game and they held on for an 18-17 win. Rob Stanbury, Ian Ramsay & Tony Osborne were 8-2 down after 6 ends however by the 10th end they were 9-8 ahead. This was a tight game throughout and with 2 ends to play we were 15-13 ahead however we then dropped a 3 to go in to the last end a shot down however we picked up a 2 to win by a shot and give us the 3 winning rinks. Unfortunately with Waddesdon winning all 4 rinks it meant that despite winning all 5 of our games we still only finished 2nd in the division which will mean an away tie in the quarter finals.
