St Andrews reached the last 32 of the Denny Plate competition and travel to Buckinghamshire for the next round.

ST ANDREWS have reached the last 32 of the Denny Plate competition and the away rinks have to travel to Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire to play Fox Hill Bowling Club.

Saints just missed out in the over-60s double rink, once again playing Taunton Deane and for the second time the might of Don Fowkes’ rink.

Tony Steer ‘s away rink kept the score tight and managed a three shot victory. At home, Barrie Forse’s rink had the hardest task and were leading well into the game, but dropped a six and finished five shots down, losing by two shots overall.

Two mixed friendlies both resulted in a win for St Andrews. Against Isle of Wedmore, Don Stanton’s rink had a handsome win, Audrey Powell a draw and Ernie Hooper went down by two shots.
