BOWLS: Oxfordshire sign off cup campaign on a high note

Oxford Mail: Mark Charlett skipped Oxfordshire’s highest-winning rink, which ensured victory over Kent Mark Charlett skipped Oxfordshire’s highest-winning rink, which ensured victory over Kent

Despite being unable to qualify from their group, Oxfordshire finished their Middleton Cup campaign on a high note by beating Kent 113-104 at Halls BC, Dartford.

Trailing all the way, Oxon finished strongly to secure a 17-5 points victory and finish third in South Group Section B.

Things didn’t look good for Oxfordshire at the start as Kent big-hitters Gordon Charlton and Duncan Hanmore opened up early leads over Ian Snowdon and Alan Prew, whose fours dug in to finish 12 and one shot down respectively.

The rinks of Mark Sykes and Baden Sparkes were involved in close games, but some excellent play saw them claim victory by two and six shots respectively.

Paul Sharman, with under 25s star Shane Cooper stepping up to No 3, Paul Comley, in his first game for several years, and regular lead Lee Young won the final seven ends of their game to come from ten behind and draw 16-16 with Ken Weyand.

Mark Charlett, with Sam Watts, Kevin Alder and Gary May, another under 25 player, also moving to No 3, dominated against Paul Barnicott.

They won 15 of the 21 ends to record a crushing 28-12 victory, and ensure the overall success.
