It was double fixture week in the Alan Myerscough-sponsored Ulverston and District Bowling League.

In Division Two, leaders Salthouse A strengthened their position at the top of the table with two excellent 14-1 away wins against Police and Walney Park A, opening up a 17-point lead on the rest of the field.

West Shore are now the closest challengers as they also managed to win both games this week. They followed up an excellent 12-3 away victory at Police with a 9-5 win at home to Glaxo A to keep themselves in the promotion hunt.

Dalton CC A have found their stride in recent weeks and managed a 22-point haul as they defeated Police at home 10-4 before returning from the tricky Kirkby green with a brilliant 12-3 victory.

Lindal A continue to reel off the wins as well, with this week’s victims being West Mount, who fell to a 10-5 home defeat, and Kings Head, who took more games than most away from the difficult Lindal green but still fell to a 10-4 defeat.

Kings Head fell to another away defeat when they travelled to Roose A, suffering a 9-5 reversal, whilst Roose then found things tough on their travels as well, running into a Hawcoat Park A team in top form as they were defeated 11-3.

Askam A entertained Kirkby in the battle of the villages and the game saw the closest result of the week as the home side just managed to cross the line with an 8-6 victory, but they found things tougher in their other game as they travelled to West Mount and fell to a 10-4 loss.
