Thursday’s brought more success when June Lawrence, Jean Nicholls, Jean Sharp and Margaret Langley-Roberts travelled to Stony Stratford in the County 4’s and won 20-14.

And Saturday morning saw June Lawrence and Diane Form travelling to Bletchley St Martins to face a home pairing in the national over 55’s winning 19-17 to progress to the next round.

But it was not to be for Chandos Men as they went down by two to three, Bob Reynolds and John McAndrew winning their games.
