Have your say

EBF Spalding & District Bowls League: THE top two teams in Division One really flexed their muscles last week with dominating whitewash wins.

Leaders Royal Mail Cart A racked up 102 shots as they thrashed Carter’s Park A 6-0, while rivals Spalding Town A amassed 114 shots in their dominant disposal of Consti A.

All four rinks were exemplary for Mail Cart, with C Forman, B Wilson and M Spencer (29-10) leading the charge.

Still 3.5 points behind, Town were even more impressive. An incredible 35 of their shots came from I Bertram, D Coleman and R Wing.

Whaplode Drove A were also on blistering form in Division Two. The leaders went six points clear with a 5-1 success over Moulton Harrox B, as Robin Harris, Mick Gavaghan and Dave Burgess took 30 shots.

It was a different story for Goodfellowship in the third tier. The table toppers were upset by lowly Sutton Bridge B 5-1 – allowing Swineshead to close the gap.

They dispatched Bourne B 5-1 to move within half a point of their rivals. E May, W Richardson and R Turner (21-13) top scored on their rink.

There looks to be no stopping Ayscoughfee B in Division Four at the moment.

M Copcutt, J Izzard and G Brakes scored a scorching 35 shots in their 5-1 home win over Long Sutton B.
