It is as you were in Division One of the Alan Myerscough sponsored Ulverston and District bowling league where seven teams will still be harbouring thoughts of the title.

Red River sit at the top having caught up their game in hand this week. They first travelled to the Co-op and will be happy to have returned with an 11-4 victory.

The Reddies then visited Dalton CC in a rearranged fixture and in a close game just lost 9-5. The Cricket were helped along the way with excellent 21-7 wins from Keith Banks and Alan Edwards. Mark Coulter was in top form for the Reddies winning 21-5.

In a good week for the Cricketers they also entertained the then top of the table Glaxo and with a strong team performance ran out 10-4 winners. Paul Lewis, Dave Kent and Billy ‘bob’ Thornton all had great single figure wins for Dalton.

Glaxo now find themselves level on points with Lindal in second place as the village side also found themselves defeated away from home on their visit to Askam. Lian Knowles and Chris Atkinson won 21-3 and 21-4 respectively to set Askam on their way and although Ian France and Paul Kissock replied with 21-9 wins for Lindal it wasn’t enough to stop Askam taking the game 8-6.

Last year’s champions King Alfred are finally finding some form and had their best win of the season as they visited Ulverston Cons and had a great 12-3 victory. Lee Barnard’s 21-7 was the best result with Steve Atkinson and a rare appearance from Dave Whitehead both securing 21-10 wins.

After a couple of poor results Salthouse got back to winning ways defeating Hawcoat Park 9-5. Billy Thompson was unstoppable as he won 21-5 with Chris Lloyd also performing well in his 21-11 victory. Hawcoat’s top man Bob Parkinson has hit a rich vein of form of late and was delighted to have beaten an in form opponent 21-8.

The biggest win of the night went to Roose who entertained Co-op A losing just one game in the process. Ian Gomersall’s 21-6 was the best of five single figure wins with Jordan McNamee, Mike Watt, Chas Crellin and Derek Yates all following him home.

Two Walney sides clashed at West Shore as Post Office defeated Walney Park 9-5. Barry Woodall and Ian Pullin both won 21-7 for the Posties whilst Paul Milburn was the leading winner for the Park.
