THERE was little good news to report from Marlow after intense bowling and the Bucks Cup quarter-final success the previous week.

It has been a week of disappointment that began with Dave White and his triples team of Brian Jones and Stewart Rump losing 15-13 to Bletchley Town in the semi-final.

Two days later, Rump and White were well beaten in the semi-final of the pairs competition again against the hands of Bletchley.

If that was not enough, there was further upset when White lost 21-13 in the semi-final of the singles to an opponent from Bletchley St. Martins.

The final nail in the coffin was the men's fours attempt to deny Gerrards Cross at High Wycombe on Sunday. Despite a gargantuan effort, it was all in vain as the quartet of Dave Turner, Jones, Andy Savin and skip White missed out by only a single shot, 17-16.

It was a very frustrating set of results for



the club

would like to congratulate all its players that reached semi-finals. The club would also like to wish good luck to Bob Broad, who is still in contention for a spot in the Unbadged Singles final.

The friendly fixture against Flackwell Heath provided Marlow with another defeat when losing on all rinks for an overall score of 92-71. The best rink for Marlow was Dennis Bloomfield, Jean Barltrop and George Malster, who were one shot behind their opponents in a 17-16 loss.
