Division Two of the Allan Myerscough sponsored Ulverston and District Bowling League saw a huge game take place at Raglan Street as leaders Salthouse A welcomed second-placed Dalton CC A.

The Dalton team came out all guns blazing in the hope of clawing back some of the gap created over the last few weeks and they did just that winning 10-5, inflicting just the third defeat of the season on their opponents. Richard Sharples had a great 21-8 victory for Dalton along with Jeff Benson 21-10 and Harry Dagger 21-11.

West Shore took the chance to move back into the title race as well as they visited Barrow Island and ran out comfortable 11-4 winners. Top man and merit leader Steven Hunter put last week’s first defeat of the season behind him, showing great bouncebackability in his 21-6 win back on his old stomping ground.

Kirkby visited Hawcoat Park A and will be disappointed to have suffered a 10-4 defeat meaning they now have a mountain to climb to get back into the promotion race. Jimmy Tongue and Ray Williams were in awesome form for Hawcoat both winning 21-6 along with Tony Lashmar 21-7.

The two bottom clubs met at Walney Park as their A team welcomed Police and will be delighted to have won just their second win of the season, and impressively so with an 11-3 victory, to close the gap between the two clubs. John Whitall and Leo Clarke both won 21-9 for the home team.

Roose A have seen an influx of new blood as they try to bring new bowlers into the game and it is beginning to bear fruit this week they comfortably defeated Askam A 10-4. Wayne Buchannan is going from strength to strength and had a great 21-7 victory against a tough opponent this week.

Two teams who have shown mixed form this season met at Glaxo as the A team took on Lindal A and perhaps surprisingly it was the village side who were victorious with a brilliant 11-4 win. The brothers Preston, Jack and John, were both in the winners enclosure to make for a happy household with Jack having the best result for his team 21-11.

Kings Head had to give two games away as they played West Mount, so were up against it from the start and not surprisingly they fell to an 11-4 defeat. Ian Littlewood was in brilliant form for the Mount as won 21-6 with Kevin Quinn backing him up (21-10).
