Gap widens at top of league

A third successive 10-0 win has put a clear gap at the top of the Breckland league, with Carleton Rode the team best placed currently in third have a game in hand but are already seventeen points adrift. Harling Griffins were the visitors to Kett's Park but like Carleton Rode and Shropham they came away fruitless. The first session saw R. Steele, M. Barker and J. Pye beat V. Easter, G. Hume and S. Easter 32-8. With Steve Easter having been coming to almost every roll up in the summer and autumn months improving his game and technique this was expected to be a tightish affair but apart from a few good woods he had a lot to do with Roger on good form at lead for the home side ran home comfortable victors. J. Sparham, L. Hawksworth and D. Sparham beat J. Deathridge, D. Hunt and L. Deathridge 24-7. With two new players to league bowls in the Harling triple they coped very well considering what a baptism of fire the fixture could of potentially been and what could of been a much heavier score they only had one end where they conceded more than a brace. The second session B. Barker, J. Jeffery and M. Linsdell beat V. Smith, C. Newman and G. Cody 31-7 while H. Stratton, M. Fisher and C. Mann beat B. Murphy, J. Hayman and C. Hayman won 22-13.
