UP to £50million of funding to make improvements to the A34 has been confirmed by the chancellor of the exchequer Philip Hammond, it was revealed last week. In a letter sent to Newbury MP Richard Benyon and Oxfordshire MPs Ed Vaizey and Nicola Blackwood, Mr Hammond outlined the funds as part of the Government’s road investment strategy 2015-2020. Technology enhancements including the introduction of vehicle detection loops which monitor vehicles passing certain points, CCTV cameras and driver information systems on the A34 between the M4 and the M40 have been allocated up to £25million. Another £25million has been put aside to make improvements to the Peartree and Botley interchanges in Oxford. The money was fi rst announced for the road in 2014, but Mr Benyon has said that this has now been brought forward, with the full funding made available. He said: “We’re all delighted, this is going to make a big difference to safety on the road. “The funding was costed as far back [as 2014] and there was a programme to have it delivered by 2020, but my understanding is that has been brought

Man accused of rape claims girl consented By Adam Flinn A GREENHAM man accused of raping an underage girl in a field claimed during his police interview that she had instigated it, Reading Crown Court has heard. Jake Hatter, 21, of Peckmoor Drive, denies raping a 15-yearold girl – who cannot be named for legal reasons – in a field in Newbury back in November 2014. On Monday the court heard a transcript of the interview he gave to police following his arrest in December 2015. In it he described how he had been talking to the girl on social media for several months

beforehand, fl irting with her and sending messages of a sexual nature before meeting up for the fi rst time. Hatter said in his interview: “At some point late afternoon or early evening we started talking on Facebook, and decided to meet up outside her house. “We went to a field [nearby] and had a general talk, and after putting her cigarette out she put her hand on my crotch, like a grab, and we had sex. “She defi nitely didn’t ask me to stop or gave any signal to stop, it was absolutely consensual. “We both knew it was going to happen and agreed to it.� Hatter added that while get-

ting dressed afterwards she received a phone call from her dad, and they walked back to her house before Hatter left. Following that she then blocked him on social media, said by Hatter to be around a week afterwards, and he didn’t try to contact her again. However some time later Hatter said she did get in touch to say she had contracted chlamydia, and he should get himself tested. Hatter continued in his interview: “I don’t know why she would make this allegation, completely baffled. “When [the police] picked me up I was shocked. I think if she has contracted the STD (sexu-

ally transmitted disease) she blames me, and doesn’t know the consequences of this for me. “It just seems really vindictive and over the top.� Hatter also said that he didn’t realise the girl was 15 when they met up, and assumed she was 16 based on her actions. Earlier in the trial the girl alleged that she had been persuaded by Hatter to meet him, and he began groping her before they had sex. She added that she had made it clear that she did not consent to sex, and made up an excuse of her dad contacting her in order to escape. The trial continues.

Pangbourne is ‘repulsive’, says DH Lawrence “PANGBOURNE is repulsive – it sort of smells.� Those are the words of the English playwright DH Lawrence, revealed in a letter that was sold at auction in Edinburgh yesterday. The letter was written by the Lady Chatterley’s Lover author in 1919 while he was staying at Myrtle Cottage in the village. It was addressed to Bertie Herbert Farjeon, with Lawrence trying to secure an alternative cottage, understood to have been Spring Cottage in Bucklebury Common. In the letter, it said: “We like Myrtle Cottage, but Pangbourne is repulsive – it sort of smells – women use scent on their clothes, and petrol plus river plus pavement plus women – I suffer by the nose.� The letter was part of a collection of rare books, manuscripts, maps and photography at the Lyon and Turnbull auction

News Bites A339 delays NEWBURY: Residents are being warned of increased traffic delays for the next nine weeks as work on the A339 enters its final phase. Daily lane closures will be in force between 9.30am and 3.30pm Mondays to Fridays, with a contra-ow layout in place. The closures are so the southbound carriageway can be resurfaced and white lines painted, while some outstanding drainage and ducting work is carried out. West Berkshire Council is warning of trafďŹ c delays as a result, and is advising drivers to allow more time for journeys during the affected periods. The project was initially expected to be ďŹ nished in February, however the nine weeks of lane closures takes this into March.

Basin plans THATCHAM: A planning application for the next flood alleviation basin in Thatcham has been submitted to West Berkshire Council. This one, proposed for Dunstan Park off Floral Way, would be the third of the four planned to protect the town from ooding. It comes after devastating oods hit the town in 2007. The ďŹ rst basin has been completed at Cold Ash Hill, while the second is off Tull Way. A fourth basin is also planned for south east Thatcham. West Berkshire Council has set a determination deadline of March 16 for the latest application.

Recent break-ins WEST BERKS: A number of break-ins at equestrian establishments in West Berkshire have been reported over the past week. Police believe that thieves have been looking for veterinary medication, and are advising that medication should be kept in locked buildings.

Waste permits issued to residents on the border By Adam Flinn WASTE permits for residents living just over the West Berkshire border in Hampshire have finally been issued with permits to use the Newtown Road recycling centre in Newbury, for the next year at least. Hampshire residents had been prohibited from using the centre, as well as the other site in Padworth, since West Berkshire Council introduced a permit scheme in September last year.

VË ÁË ”‰™‰WË jW

That came about when Hampshire County Council stopped its annual £200,000 contribution for its residents to use West Berkshire’s recycling centres as part of cost-cutting measures. But an agreement has now been reached between the two authorities for those living close to the border to use the Newbury centre, rather than facing a much lengthier journey to the next closest tip in Andover or Basingstoke. However this agreement is initially only in place for the next 12 months. Rob Humby, Hampshire’s executive member for environment, said: “I hope this transitional arrangement will be useful to residents. “I am grateful to our colleagues at both West Berkshire Council for working with us on this arrangement, and at Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council for helping us identify the areas furthest from a Hampshire site.” The permits are only for households who live more than 10 miles away from a Hampshire site, and for cars only. No commercial, industrial or

VË0†jË!jÝ͝ݙË-?aËÁjWßW‰™~ËWj™ÍÁjˉ™Ë!jÝMÖÁß building waste is being accepted from Hampshire residents. However Dominic Boeck, West Berkshire’s executive member for the environment, said that the agreement could be continued after the initial 12

months if Hampshire wish. He said: “If Hampshire fi nds that the arrangement suits them, then we’ll be perfectly happy to accommodate them. “What we said all along was it’s a matter of cost for us, so

The push for safety improvements came after 45-year-old Tracy Houghton, her two sons Ethan, 13, and Josh, 11, and her partner’s daughter Aimee Goldsmith, 11, died in an eight-vehicle crash on the A34 near the East Ilsley junction on August 10 last year, caused by lorry driver Tomasz Kroker who was distracted by his mobile phone. The A34 Action Group was set up in the aftermath of the crash, which demanded changes be made to the road in order to improve safety.

A debate in parliament in October led to roads minister John Hayes promising an immediate safety study into the road, as well as considering the long-term option of making the road a motorway. Mr Benyon added: “We are going to continue to put pressure on the Government to make sure this is happening. “We’re not going to take our foot off the pedal just because of this announcement, this is an absolute priority.”

WEST Berkshire Council is looking to carry out an indepth review into how it can raise more money. The council’s resources select committee is due to meet next Tuesday to discuss establishing a task group which would look at how best to implement proposals to generate more income. In the past the council has been criticised for not doing enough to look at other ways of raising money aside from tax. With further cuts to its budget expected in the coming years, West Berkshire is hoping that these measures to bring in more money could mean fewer cuts to council services. In the pre-meeting report, it says: “Finding new ways to generate income are necessary to address the shortfall in all council’s budgets across the country. “Lessons can be learnt from other authorities that have already successfully implemented income generating proposals. “A small time limited task and fi nish group should be set up to explore whether any of the initiatives undertaken elsewhere could be introduced in West Berkshire.” The meeting starts at the council’s offices at 6.30pm.

Funding brought forward for A34 changes VËÁ”ËwÁ™Íˬ?~j In his letter, Mr Hammond wrote that Highways England is currently analysing both schemes ahead of implementation, although no dates were given for when work could start. His letter continued: “I recognise the importance of maintaining momentum on these projects and I have asked my officials to engage with the Department for Transport to ensure there are no overdue delays in the process.”

basically the agreement would be no additional cost to West Berkshire, and that’s what we’ve agreed on. “We’re just covering our costs, we’re not seeking to make money from this.”

Man moved ambulance to get to parking space Read this newspaper online at www.newburyobserver.co.uk

By Adam Flinn A SELFISH motorist who moved an ambulance while someone was being treated just so he could get his car into a parking space is being sought by police. The incident took place at around 2.10pm on December 29 in Malt Place, in Pelican Lane, Newbury.

To advertise call Newbury Observer on 01635 780180

Ambulance staff were treating a patient in the back of the ambulance when a man got into the cab of the vehicle, removed the handbrake and moved it forwards. He then got out and drove his own car into a parking space which the ambulance had been blocking. Police say the sudden move-

ment of the ambulance caused distress and discomfort to the patient. The offender is described as white, aged about 50, was about 5ft 10ins tall and of a slim build, and was driving a red Mini Cooper with a numberplate beginning RJ60. Investigating officer PC Nick Easener, based at Newbury

police station, said: “There was no communication between the offender and the ambulance crew prior to the ambulance being moved. “The offender moved the ambulance in order to free up a parking space for himself, without considering if anyone was receiving treatment at the time. “His actions could have had

Thursday, January 12 - Wednesday, January 18, 2017 5

very serious consequences for the patient, who was receiving emergency care. “There were other members of the public in the area at the time of the incident, and I am appealing for anyone with any information to come forward and contact the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number on 101.”

Hurt hamster saved by surgery AN INJURED hamster suffered a leg-loss new year after having to be rushed to a Newbury vet to have her leg amputated. Garcia, a female one-year-old Russian Dwarf hamster, injured herself on New Year’s Eve after falling awkwardly while running around her cage. Her owner Eleanor Read took the unfazed hamster to GKG Vets, where they discovered that Garcia had suffered a broken hind leg and the bone had come through the skin. Without amputation, Garcia would have to have been put to sleep, so the following day very

delicate surgery was carried out on the hamster. It was a complete success, and within a few hours Garcia was back to her usual self, running around her cage as if nothing had happened. “I am amazed at Garcia’s brilliant recovery,” said Eleanor. “By operating out of hours on New Year’s Day, it meant Garcia survived a life-threatening injury – they really went the extra mile for us.” Vet Stuart Davenport added: “It was an unusual way to spend New Year’s Day, but we know that animals don’t only get ill in

office hours. “Garcia’s injury was very serious. Despite the fact it had occurred late on New Year’s Eve we knew we needed to act if she was to be saved.” He continued: “We stabilised her initially with pain relief and antibiotics, and early on New Year’s Day we operated to amputate the limb, removing the damaged limb and leaving healthy tissue. “Eleanor and Garcia were both grateful and that makes it all worthwhile.”

Public inquiry starts into 400 homes appeal A PUBLIC inquiry into plans to build 401 homes in north Newbury near Vodafone has begun this week. Developer CEG Land Promotions wants to build the homes at Hilltop, in Donnington, on either side of the A339 around the Vodafone roundabout. The application was refused by West Berkshire Council in November 2015 on the grounds of the increased strain on the local roads and concerns about the connection between the two sides of the development, as well as it not being listed as a preferred development site. At the time CEG said they intended to appeal the ruling, and the inquiry began at the council’s offices in Newbury on Tuesday. Almost 150 objections were lodged during the consultation process in 2015, with flooding, traffic and pressure on local infrastructure being cited as the main issues. Also included in the application, alongside the homes, is a one form entry primary school and a 400sq m local centre. The inquiry is being led by the Planning Inspectorate, and is expected to last for eight days.

Celebrating 50 years of Watermill Theatre By Adam Flinn WHAT do Sean Bean, David Jason and Bill Nighy all have in common? All of them have appeared on stage early in their careers at The Watermill Theatre in Bagnor, near Newbury, which this year is celebrating its 50th anniversary. To mark the occasion, the theatre is asking people to get in touch with their stories and memories of past productions and events. Stories will then be shared throughout the year on the Watermill’s website, social media, and displays at the theatre. One such story is that of Roy and Carole Oldham, who enjoyed a very memorable evening watching Sean Bean’s professional acting debut at Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet in 1983. “After the performance, in the theatre’s candle-lit restaurant, I had arranged for a

New care jobs WEST BERKS: New jobs are being created at home care provider Bluebird Care, which has offices in Newbury. Around 100 new care assistants are needed around the country, to help provide support to the elderly, people with physical disabilities and adults with learning difficulties. Managing director Phil Miles said: “Employing committed and passionate care assistants has been a huge part of our success in recent years.” For more details, email kimteagle@bluebirdcare.co.uk or go to bluebirdcare.co.uk/ newbury.

us both – me and Sean Bean.” The Watermill opened in 1967 for its fi rst professional theatre season, which included a production of Under Milk Wood, starring David Jason. Bill Nighy worked as an assistant stage manager at the theatre in 1969 before making his professional acting debut on the Watermill stage in Plaza Suite. The theatre is also well known for its Shakespearian productions, which have included Othello, Henry V, and for this year, a 1920s adaptation of Twelfth Night.

Paul Hart, the Watermill’s artistic and executive director, said: “To celebrate 50 years of dramatic theatre, we are inviting actors, creative teams, audience members, staff and outreach participants to share their memories of the theatre. “We would love to hear as many Watermill memories as possible as we reflect on the rich history of the theatre and look forward to the future in our 50th anniversary year.” To share a memory of the Watermill, go to watermill.org. uk/your_watermill_memory.

Council chairman Quentin Webb will lead a short ceremony paying tribute to the victims of the Holocaust, and life afterwards for the survivors.

Test your alarms WEST BERKS: Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) is encouraging residents to make a new year’s resolution to test their smoke alarms every week. They are also reminding people to make sure they have enough alarms in their house to cover all areas of the property. Pete Farmer, RBFRS’s temporary manager for prevention, said: “It is very important to test your smoke alarms every week, without fail, to ensure they are working correctly. “If it doesn’t work, it will not warn you so therefore it can’t protect you. Push the button, not your luck.”

New plan lodged for 1,000 homes at Sandleford Park By Adam Flinn

A FRESH application for 1,000 homes at Sandleford Park in Newbury has been submitted to West Berkshire Council, with no decision on the plans for 2,000 homes on the site having yet been made. Developer Bloor Homes has put forward the new proposals for its portion of the land, which it says would allow building to commence “without delay”. This application also includes plans for a two-form entry school, an 80-bed care home, a country park and shops. It comes after council offic-

ers said recently they would be unlikely to recommend approval to the original 2,000 home application due to ongoing disagreements over access into the site. The planning statement for the new application reads: “The development proposed is on land that is owned or controlled by the applicants. “This allows for commencement of development at Sandleford Park without delay, facilitating early delivery of this site of strategic importance for West Berkshire. “The early delivery of this allocated site will make a significant contribution to West

Berkshire’s housing need.” VË˔?¬ËwË.?™ajwÁaË Bloor’s section of Sandleford +?ÁËƝ݉™~Ë͆jË Park is the much larger portion, ?™aËW™ÍÁjaËMßË covering the northern, eastern Á˝”jÄË?™aË and southern parts of the land.

THIS year’s Newbury in Bloom competition is bidding for a funding boost of up to £5,000 from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.

Pots of £2,000 and £1,000 are also on offer, and are funded

from the 5p charge for carrier bags. Dave Goff, leader of Newbury Town Council, said: “We were so pleased with the quality of entrants we had for Newbury in Bloom 2016 and the enthusiasm for the project was great. “With the extra funding from Tesco stores we will be able to expand the campaign and enhance the floral displays in

the town for everyone to enjoy throughout the summer. “Everyone can help by voting for us when shopping in local Tesco stores – you just need to add your token to the voting boxes in store. “Please help us to raise as much funding as we can.” Voting is open in West Berkshire Tesco stores until January 28.

Arts projects to begin for district’s over-55s By Adam Flinn FOUR projects aimed at helping people over 55 to get creative are set to begin this spring at Newbury Corn Exchange. Ageing Creatively is the Corn Exchange’s programme of events and activities for older people which was officially launched in October. Following on from that the first project, Choir 55, is due to start today from 2pm at St Nicolas School in Newbury. It is a community choir for people aged 55 and over and led by a local choir master, with all abilities and experience levels welcome to join. Starting next Friday is Dare to Dance, an adult community dance project for participants to explore their creative side and improve their fitness. The first tester session is at Park House School from 7pm. Ageing Creatively coordinator Harriet Wyatt said: “We are so pleased to be launching Choir 55 and Dare to Dance. “Both projects are a really exciting opportunity for members of the community to do something creative, meet new

VË?ÁÁ‰jÍË8ß?ÍÍËĬj?‰™~Ë݉͆ËÁjĉaj™ÍÄË?MÖÍË͆jˬÁŽjWÍÄ people and learn new skills. “All of our Ageing Creatively projects will be welcoming and accessible no matter what your previous experience. “Being creative can help us live healthier, happier lives, especially if we meet new friends along the way.” The other two projects – This

is Me and Words Together – are based in care settings. Words Together will see visitors to Fairclose Day Centre create their own poems, while This is Me is a number of art sessions being held at care homes across West Berkshire. Ageing Creatively benefitted from £117,000 of funding from

the National Lottery’s Big Lottery Fund last year, allowing the programme to be established in the first place. For more information about any of the projects, go to cornexchangenew.com/ageingcreatively or call the Corn Exchange box office on 0845 5218 218.

Town prepared to pay to keep library open THATCHAM Town Council is prepared to finance the town’s library to the tune of almost £25,000 in order to keep it open, as long as its budget allows it to do so. An extraordinary meeting was held on Wednesday to discuss the future of the library. It comes after West Berkshire Council called upon the parishes to each make a contribution towards the running of the district’s libraries. West Berkshire has proposed collecting around £150,000 from the parishes – equivalent to just under £1 per resident – and using volunteers to staff the libraries in a bid to cut costs. A final decision is due to be made by West Berkshire Council on February 7. Speaking after last Wednesday’s meeting, Thatcham’s mayor Ellen Crumly said: “We have decided we would support an application from West Berkshire to make a contribution of about £25,000 to the running of the library, completely dependent on our own budget which we are setting at the moment. “We definitely want to keep the library open so we’re very happy to support the plans they came up with about the volunteers, and if we do have the finances available we would give the financial support.”

Make lots of noise to scare off evil spirits

News Bites

CEO begins role WEST BERKS: Steve McManus has started his new role as chief executive of the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust.

By Adam Flinn THATCHAM residents will once again be invited to help ward off the evil spirits from the orchard at the Nature Discovery Centre this weekend for the annual wassail. The ancient tradition of wassailing dates back hundreds of years and involves people visiting orchards and singing to the trees or making lots of noise to keep bad spirits away and ensure a good harvest for the coming year. It is a relatively new custom at the Nature Discovery Centre however, as after a small ceremony was held in 2015, it was first opened up to the public last year. Sandra Pedgley, chairwoman of the Thatcham Community Orchard group, said: “Wassail is a weird and wonderful slice of English heritage and quirkiness. “There’s a traditional wassail song ‘Here’s to thee, old apple tree’, and we ask a girl, who represents new life, to put slices of toast in the trees. “It sounds very strange, but the idea is that it feeds the good spirits.”

VË.ÍjÜjË W ?™ÖÄ

He began in the post last Tuesday after his appointment was announced in October, and takes over from the acting chief executive Mary Sherry. Mr McManus said: “I am looking forward to working hard with all our staff to deliver what is expected of us for our patients.”

Councillor resigns VË-jĉaj™ÍÄËÍ?‰™~ˬ?ÁÍˉ™Ë?ÄÍËßj?Á¾ÄËÝ?ÄÄ?‰Ë‰™Ë0†?ÍW†?” Wassails are usually held in January up and down the country, but more commonly in cider producing areas such as Devon and Somerset. It is not known how far wassailing dates back, but is thought to predate the Norman

conquest in 1066. Sandra added: “We have to scare away all the evil spirits who might do bad things to the trees. “We’re asking people to bring along musical instruments or even just a wooden spoon and

a saucepan lid – anything to bang together and make a lot of noise.” The orchard is in the meadow next to the Nature Discovery Centre, and the wassail is taking place from 2pm to 3pm on Sunday afternoon.

GREENHAM: Yet another councillor has stood down from Greenham Parish Council. Teresa King has resigned her position, meaning that once again the council is looking for someone to fill her place. She is the seventh councillor to have stood down in the last 12 months.

You Don’t Have To Sell!! Talk To Me. Local mortgage advisers Michael Usher Mortgage Services based in Winchester Street, Basingstoke have some good news for the over 55s in Basingstoke and surrounding villages. They are now expanding their very successful offering of a mortgage product for homeowners that are: • Either trapped in an “Interest Only” mortgage • Nearing the end of their mortgage term with their existing lender and have nowhere to go, as the normal High Street lenders are trying to move these borrowers on • Customers that have no mortgage on their homes and wish to raise some monies for home improvements, grandchildren’s education or even pay for a cruise! Michael Usher, founder and owner of the firm comments “We have been advising on these products for over 15 years and have made a lot of people very happy with our advice”. He goes on to say, “for some people this wide range of products can help homeowners live in their property until they pass on or downsize, this obviously gives total peace of mind for anyone that is feeling the pressure”. The types of lenders that are offering these products are Aviva, Legal & General, LV and Just Retirement to name a few. They are all keen to lend to homeowners who have vast amounts of equity in their homes, who are aged 55 plus and wish to borrow money against their bricks & mortar. Michael Usher Mortgage Services have the experience to look after your personal needs. They have been successfully arranging mortgages since 1987 and opened their second office in Basingstoke in May 2015.

Michael goes on to say, "I am personally committed to giving our clients a 5 Star service from start to finish, I want all prospective customers whether they are First Time Buyers or experienced borrowers to receive 100% customer satisfaction from a local business and not a call centre".

Mandolin maestros make return By James Richings THEY are a group of musicians that are no strangers to Newbury. After their popular Christmas show at Arlington Arts Centre last month, it is no surprise that Simon Mayor’s Mandolinquents are on their way back VË.‰”™Ë ?ߝÁË

to West Berkshire. The band, made up of Richard Collins, Hilary James, Simon Mayor and Gerald Garcia, will return to the county on Saturday, January 28, at Newbury’s Shaw House to play a programme of familiar tunes on their mandolins. And with their shows usually selling out in Berkshire, Simon believes it will be a show to remember. “There is a wealth of music written for the mandolin,” Simon said. “Unfortunately, most of it is by minor composers you’ve probably never heard of. “Of the major composers, Vivaldi wrote two beautiful concertos, both are in the quartet’s repertoire. “For the rest of the programme, we trawl far and wide, arranging a variety of works from not only classical sources but also British traditional and world music, as well as self-penned pieces and twentieth century American ragtime and swing songs.” He added: “Anything written for the violin family can be easily arranged for mandolins, such as Baroque music which works particularly well. “And since all four quartet members have long-held passions for traditional music, ideas for arrangements from all corners of the globe

are never in short supply.” The band start their 2017 tour on January 20 in Somerset before travelling to venues nationwide including Stoke, Fife, Derby and Sheffield. Although they are so far only scheduled to do 12 gigs this year, including one in Ibiza - that number is expected to rise - the Mandolinquents are in line to do four shows in Newbury over the next 12 months. Following their show on January 28, they move up the road to Arlington Arts Centre on Friday, February 3, before returning to Shaw House on month later. They are then due to return to Arlington Arts Centre in May, with all the shows expected to sell out. Band member Hilary told the Observer: “We’ve been playing at the Arlington for a few of years now with a show every three months or so, and we love it. “We vary the programme for each concert in which we have a different special guest each time. “And for the end of January’s show we’ll be joined by musicians Geoff Bowen and Phil Fentimen. “We can’t wait for it!” Tickets cost £14, and the event starts at 7.30pm.

studio album and her fi rst since 2012. “The songs I’m performing were done by singers who I used to watch on TV when I was little,” she said. “I co-produced the album with Alastair Gavin, with whom I’ve been working on and off since the early 1980s when he was my keyboard player in The Wilsations. “Plus, I didn’t want to record the songs in the same way as these iconic artists did. I wanted the album to sound fresh and contemporary. “I wanted it to sound like a Mari Wilson album where I could put my own stamp on it and I think we achieved that.” Tickets for the 8pm show cost £17.

What’s more, for certain types of vehicle you’ll get a DVLA approved Certificate of Destruction (CoD). A CoD proves the ATF has told DVLA your vehicle has been scrapped and is no longer your responsibility. www.direct.gov.uk.motoring

Cooper-Clark hat-trick sees Thatcham win at Longlevens By Adam Flinn A SHANE Cooper-Clark hattrick earned Thatcham Town their 15th win of the season away to struggling Longlevens on Saturday. The match ended 3-1 in the visitors’ favour, and infl icted

a fi fth straight defeat on the Gloucestershire side. It didn’t take Cooper-Clark long to register his fi rst goal, fi ring home with just four minutes having been played. Longlevens managed to get the equaliser just past the quarter of an hour mark, before That-

cham were back in front shortly before half-time with CooperClark’s second. And the striker completed his hat-trick on 87 minutes in a solid performance all round from the Kingfishers. It keeps Thatcham fourth in the Hellenic Premier Division

Kings rule in Hampshire THAMES Valley Kings Wheelchair Basketball Club picked up their first ever away win as they comfortably beat Hampshire Harriers 45-14 on Sunday. The Kings have won three

out of their five matches in the National League Division 3 South and West this season, with this weekend’s win putting them up to third in the table. Peter Rapley put in a strong

scoring display in the first quarter, and helped to establish a 14-3 lead for the Kings in the early stages. They extended their lead in the second quarter, with Reece Barker and Joe Humphreys starring in particular. The third quarter saw an improved showing from the Harriers, although the Kings still won the period 6-4 to make the score 32-12. And Barker and Humphreys put in a charge in the fi nal quarter to round out the match and earn another victory. Kings founder Jacqueline Scoins-Cass said: “It was great to see the players’ hard work pay off for our third win of the season. “It’s a huge testament to Grant (Barker) on his continued work with the division three team.” Their next game is against Worcester Wolves on Sunday, taking place at St Bartholomew’s School in Newbury.

Wells close to defending title LUCY Wells wasn’t quite able to defend her Berkshire Cross Country Championships title but still put in a good performance to finish second in the under-15 girls’ category at the weekend. She kept up with the leaders for much of the race before dropping back to the chasing pack, but a strong fi nish secured her the runner-up spot. Sam Hart also earned a silver medal in the men’s under-17s group, while James McLaughlin achieved the same feat in the boy’s under-15s race. Other results saw Helen Preedy come home fi fth in the women’s seniors race, while Callum O’Neill also came fi fth in the men’s group. And at the South of England Indoor Track and Field Championships at Lee Valley, Anna Pettit secured her fi rst major title in the under-15s girls’ 1,500m. She ran 5:05.3 to take the gold

medal, having been unbeaten over the winter in any event indoors or outdoors. In the men’s under-17s competitions, Stuart Bladon fi nished fi fth in the high jump with a leap of 1.70m.

However British Diving didn’t make an offer, so he has chosen to join the Australian diving team instead. Mears, along with diving partner Jack Laugher, won Team GB’s fi rst ever diving gold in Rio in the men’s synchronised 3m springboard. Speaking of the news to the BBC, Mears said: “To be honest

Three tries in final five minutes give Newbury victory by one point

Blues pull off a great escape to snatch win By Adam Flinn NEWBURY Blues staged a sensational comeback in the last five minutes of their game against Swindon on Saturday to steal victory by a single point. They won 32-31 at Monks Lane to get 2017 off to a winning start, having been 14 points behind with just minutes left on the clock. Swindon had got the fi rst points of the board with a penalty, before Jamie Futcher got the Blues’ fi rst try on 24 minutes to put them 5-3 ahead. A converted try put Swindon back in front shortly before the break, with Nick Wackwitz’s penalty for Newbury on the stroke of half-time getting them back within two points. After a quiet fi rst half the game exploded into life following the restart, and the Blues got their noses back in front with Wackwitz’s second penalty. Moments later Swindon began their charge with their second and third tries coming in quick succession, both of which were converted. Penalties number three and four from Wackwitz closed the deficit to

seven points, before Swindon got their lead up to 14 with their fourth try. With 12 minutes left Newbury were in all sorts of trouble, and were going to need to put in a big performance to try and get anything out of the game. And that’s exactly what happened, with the run starting on 75 minutes as Anthony Hackett touched down for a five-pointer. They were still nine points behind, but within two minutes the gap was down to four as Alex Millar charged through the Swindon defence for another try. And the comeback was complete just as the fi nal whistle was about to be blown, as Josh Love went over in the corner for another five points, putting Newbury one ahead as the match ended, sparking celebrations from fans and players alike. The fourth try also secured the Blues a bonus point, and keeps them third in the South West 1 East table within nine points of leaders Maidenhead, who also won at the weekend. Newbury’s next match is away to Windsor on Saturday.
