At Heighington in the City League (evening), Ruskington Bowls Club won on two rinks, but lost the aggregate 61-79 to take four league points.

The club then visited Leadenham for a City League (afternoon) encounter, having defeated them in the evening league a week earlier at home.

Ruskington earned an even better result, claiming all three games and 10 league points.

David Miller with Carol Croft and Les Warren won big, 25-9, including a six and a five, but the other games were very close.

John Booth’s set of Isabel Drain and Graham Croft dropped six shots over the last two ends to finish just a shot ahead at 16-15, while Les Jenkins with Les Wilkinson and Angela Goddard won 16-13 despite losing the last six ends.

The week’s final match saw Ruskington visited by Boston in the Coningsby League.

Against their fellow promoted side, the clubs shared the points, as Ruskignton won two of the three rinks, but lost the aggregate.

Les Jenkins with Trevor Thackray and Les Wilkinson met a very strong set and were crushed 8-24, but that was almost balanced by Jim Matson’s set of Lorraine Clifton and Paul Butterworth who won 21-11.

Waylon Clarke with Sue Mitchell and Keith Pilbeam were neck-and-neck with their opponents and won the final end with a two to win the match 21-19. So we lost the aggregate and the two clubs shared the points with four each.
