Louth Indoor Bowls Club will play host to a County Sets Singles qualifying event on Sunday to decide who goes through to the semi-finals at Lincoln in April.

Louth members Simon Reeson, Russell Dent, Allan Dent and Ian Bertram will be in action, while players from other clubs include former world singles champion Billy Jackson and Danny Brown.

Play starts at noon. Non-members are welcome to go along and see how the game is played.

* One of the best performances from the club’s leagues last week was in Division Two of the Afternoon Triples.

Bottom team Celtic’s trio of Barry Jordan, Jim Brennan and Michael Todd gave unbeaten leaders SOS a run for their money before the table-toppers held out for a 15-11 win.

* There is fierce competition in several other leagues, especially in the Ladies’ Triples where three teams are level on points.

Last week’s leaders Canaries were pegged back to a 15-15 draw by second-placed Anglers, and this allowed Follies to pinch top spot on shots difference after they beat Rolling Scones 12-9.

At the bottom there was a third win on the bounce for Woodentops who moved off the bottom rung with a 19-4 win against Bunnies, swapping places with their opponents.

* Just four points separate the top four teams in Division Two of the Wednesday/Thursday Morning League where Webbos hold a two-point advantage despite seemingly trying to let the others catch up.

They beat Wise Guys 24-15, but then slumped to a 15-7 defeat against Doves who moved up to third in place of Saints who suffered defeats to Louth (16-11) and second-placed Fledglings (20-7).

It’s a two-horse race in Division One where Waltham beat Square Pegs.

* There was an important win for SOS in the Mixed Fours as they won 18-13 against second-placed Wickaholics to open up a four-point lead.

Half A Mo are challenging for second spot after winning 25-8 against Tornados, as are Falcons who beat Barracudas 19-11.
