Division 1

There were easy wins for the BLUE PITS ROVERS, HEALEY HOTEL and the WOODSIDE
BAND CLUB respectively. The closest finish was at the Bay Horse where the BAY HORSE
BANDITS just lost out to the LANCASHIRE FOLD by 2 pts. The Healey stretch their
winning run to 14 in all competitions and now only need one more victory in the
remaining three league matches to clinch the division one title.

Division 2

In the top of the table clash BLUE PITS RAIDERS got the better of NORDEN BOWLING
CLUB by 11 points to keep their title hopes alive however even a victory next week
against the Comrades Club in the Castleton derby will not guarantee them the title as
they will still be hoping that their rivals fail at the final hurdle! Perhaps surprisingly the
division's joint top scorers on the night were WOOLWORTHS SSC who along with the
Raiders rattled in 47! Now with 5 victories this season it looks as though mid table
obscurity beckons and if their form continues they are well handicapped to progress in
the Pete Corby Cup. LANCASHIRE FOLD VAULT's impressive recent form continues as
the brushed aside the Dyers by 20 points.


In what proved to be a tough HISTORICAL Gallon 4 of the 6 2nd division teams got
under 10 with The Flyers again struggling as they only managed 4 points. Blue Pits
Rovers top scored with an excellent 15 and the Roebuck Romanies were the second
highest with 14. It is looking even more likely that the tow Blue Pits teams will win their
respective gallon divisions unless total disaster strikes!

Many Thanks - Simon
