French Damages Kenilworth's Bid; Bowls

Byline: Derek Brown

KENILWORTH A lost more ground on leaders Baddesley Colliery following a disappointing 16-shot loss at midtable Bedworth B in their Coventry League Premier Two clash at Smarts Road.

Despite winning two of the opening three legs through the Machin boys, Jonathan and Stuart, both by the narrowest of margins 21-20, the visitors found their rivals hot to handle, losing out in five of the remaining games to go down 162-146. First man out Pete French did the most damage with a 21-12 sweep winning card for the hosts.

Baddesley took full advantage to stretch their advantage to 19 points as they brushed aside Walsgrave in resounding fashing 153-86 in which they bagged seven of the eight games with the anchor Bob Gilfillan hitting a rich vien of the form to foil the whitewash by taking his game 21-6. However, it was not enough to pocket the sweep stakes as the Pitmen had Richard Beal (21-1) at his peak while Dave Tunnicliffe (21-4) and Daryl Vyse (21-6) also posted single figure successes.

Dunlop A are in third spot and looking to put the pressure on Kenilworth, if not pace-setting Baddesley, and a 44-shot thumping of Sphinx at Burnaby Road did those ambitions no harm. The Tyremen found a high gear in taking seven legs although it looked ominous after the opener as Mick Shoesmith (21-11) gave the visitors an early bonus but it was all downhill from then on for the Siddeley Roaders.

Centre stage was taken by Russ Malin (21-7) although the back-up was excellent with Maurice Arnold (21-8) and Trevor Glasgow (21-10) the main support acts.

In Premier One, second-placed Newdigate A visited Stoke Coventry and returned to Smorrall Lane 16 shots to the good thanks mainly to the exploits of Darren Plenderleith (21-7) and Pete Varney (21-9) while Arthur Higginson (21-8) was the most defiant in the home camp.

Old rivals Haunchwood A and Bedworth A clashed at The Tunnel with the Galley Common getting the better of a thriller by just three shots, the inspirational duo of Darren Day and Matt Aspin shouldering the main responsibility with a brace of 21-9 cards. At the halfway stage the match was all square but Aspin's win proved pivotal although gritty work by Roger Taylor and Stu Nash in taking the final two legs failed to deny the hosts.
