ALL of the divisional titles are still up for grabs with just three weekends remaining in the Sharples Lettings Furness & District Bowling League.

King Alfred lead Division One by 17 points from Police, who have a game in hand and entertain the leaders next week and will be hoping for a big win to narrow the gap.

In Division Two, Hawcoat Park A defeated top-of-the-table Glaxo Sports Club 11-3 to go level at the top on 224 points.

Glaxo have home games against King Alfred B and Co-op SC A, and an away trip to Salthouse A.

Meanwhile, Hawcoat Park also have King Alfred B at home, and away trips to Dalton CC A and Police A to complete their season.

At the other end of the Division One table, Roose Community have a mountain to climb if they are to avoid relegation after losing 6-9 at home to Salthouse, with Bill Thompson winning 21-5 for the hosts.
