THE Dalton CC machine rolls on in Alan Myerscough (Ford)-sponsored Ulverston and District Bowling League Division Two.

This weeks victims were West Mount, who entertained the champions-elect at the Abbey Road green but could only take three poins in a 12-3 defeat.

Top man Gareth Jones was in scintillating form in his 21-4 success, with Robin Griffiths and Steve Fullard weighing in with single-figure wins of their own.

Peter Crosthwaite, Kevin Quinn and Adam Hudson scored the home side's points.

Co-op A have put themselves firmly in the driving seat for second place after visiting third-placed Dalton CC A and gaining an amazing 13-2 victory.

Top man Ian Sim led the way for the Co-op, with young Sam Naylor also in fine form in a strong team effort. The Cricketers had Jimmy Bridle and Norman Burns to thank for their points.

Askam A were another team in the top-four to suffer a heavy defeat. They made the trip to Barrow Island and will be disappointed to have only managed a four-point haul in the 10-4 defeat.

The Islanders' top-two of Dave Leece and Dave Slowey led by example, along with elder statesman Derek Heron. Askam’s Roy Proctor was their best winner, 21-17.

Salthouse A grasped the opportunity to close on their rivals with both hands. They were hosted by Hawcoat Park A but did not let the home side get a look in as they comfortably took the spoils 11-4.

Michael Smith had a terrific 21-3 victory, with James Weston backing him up with a 21-9 triumph at the bottom of the sheet.

Hawcoat’s star men were Mike Bowyer and Ian Lavender, with scores of 21-7 and 21-9 respectively.

Glaxo A find themselves cast a little adrift at the bottom of the table after visiting Roose A, who inflicted an 11-3 defeat on the works outfit.

Mike Gasson was unstoppable at bottom man for Roose as he won 21-6, with Ian Gomersall and Dave Staunton weighing in with 21-8 victories.

Glaxo’s star man was Robert Rogers, who had a remarkable 21-3 win on the tricky green.

Kings Head entertained Walney Park A in the remaining game in Division Two. Their top-man and talisman Harry Tomsett triumphed 21-3 to set them on their way to a 9-5 victory.

For the Park, Ray Visick recorded a 21-6 success of his own. Sadly, their cause was not helped by having to give a game away.
