Louth Indoor Bowls Club champions

Congratulations are in order to the Louth Indoor Bowls Club’s Men’s Over 60s team who will finish the season as champions of their county division 2 section after winning their final match 124-74 at home against Horncastle.

Top rink for Louth was that of Horace Cope, Barry Southwell, Malc Hewson and Norman Stocks which eventually won 34-13 after picking up two fours and a five over the final five ends.

Bob Ledgerwood’s rink collected 9 shots over their last three ends to win 29-10 whilst team captain Steve Moore guided his four to a 24-14 win. Louth couldn’t quite complete a whitewash as Horncastle grabbed a draw on the other two rinks. The points tally of 16-2 in Louth’s favour saw them push Lincoln ‘C’ into second place.

The Men’s ‘A’ team have hopes of gaining promotion from their county division 2 section but face a tricky away match at Long Sutton this Saturday.
