Sleaford Indoor Bowls

The Over 60’s hosted top of the table Stamford and returned wins on all five rinks to take over top spot.

G. Pask, with C. Rands, F. Collin and M. Wareham dropped just four ends towards a solid win 27 – 5. D. Chandley’s set of D. Hocking, J. Thomas and H. Smyth had to come from behind with a strong finish to a creditable win at 17 – 13.

A. Bristow’s set of K. Dowling, G. Glover and R. Pearson started strongly, had a mid-game blip, but recovered to win 24 – 11.

Team Captain L. Davies, with R. Barnes, D. Woods and T. Stanley stormed into a 15 shot lead and then piled on the pressure to run out easy winners at 35 – 8 in a display of sustained and accurate bowling. D. Stobart’s set of P. Annison, C. Grosse and T. Curran looked totally in charge at 19 – 6 on the 14th end then lost their concentration but hung on to win at 20 – 15.
