Sleaford Indoor Bowls Club A team travelled to Louth full of hope, but they were well beaten 139–77 for a disappointing end to the season.

For Sleaford, R Barnes, with F Collin, S Traynor and I Cliff, took too long to get the feel of the green and went down 16–30, while A Bristow’s set of B McKie, B Millington and J Pearson came back strongly in the third quarter, scoring 16 without reply, on their way to a very creditable 23–22 victory.

Sleaford’s only other win came from T Bannister, P Annison, K Callow and G Pask, 19–13, but R Pointon, G Chamberlaine, Roy Barnes and L Davies were well beaten 12–37, as were C Bradley, K Dowling. J Maury and R Pearson, 10–37.
