There was a tremendous result for Louth Indoor Bowls Club’s Men’s A team when they travelled to Spalding for a County League match last week.

Louth won on all five rinks in an aggregate shots victory of 127 to 73.

The best winning margin for Louth was the rink of Gary Bell, Derek Woodforth, Bob Ledgerwood and Kevin Stamford which cruised to a 37-11 victory.

And there was a comfortable 27-13 win for the rink of Andy Leggett, Barrie Robinson, Keith Kelly and Tony Musson.

Allan Dent skipped his rink to a 20-9 win, but the other two rinks were only decided on the final end, with Colin Smith’s rink winning by two shots, and Simon Reeson’s rink sneaking a one-shot win.
