Four matches brought and three wins for Ruskington Bowls Club last week.

The bad result came in their first match against Heighington in the City (evening) League Section B where relegation looks to be looming.

John Booth’s set of Trevor Thackray and Les Warren provided the only rink win, 24-19, and the only points, while Waylon Clarke’s set went down 13-24, Tony Codd’s by 14-21 and Wendy Pateman’s by 18-24.

* A victory on the Hykeham green followed in the District League with a 60-46 aggregate for eight points.

The club sits fourth in a closely-fought Division Two.

* Ruskington hosted Leadenham for a City (Afternoon) League match where two rink wins and the aggregate earned eight points.

Jim Barclay, with Carol Croft and Jackie Ray, won 23-15, and John Booth, with Les Wilkinson and Graham Croft, totally dominated to win 30-6.

Only Les Jenkins, with Isabel Drain and Lorraine Clifton, couldn’t do the business and went down 23-13.

Ruskington lie fifth with four games to play and need some wins to secure their status in the top division.

* Friday’s match at Boston in the Coningsby League resulted in a win on two rinks, plus the aggregate at 41-36 in a close-fought match.

The six-point haul leaves Ruskington second with four matches to play.
