ELY AND DISTRICT BOWLS LEAGUE
Round-up by Ron Moore
ANOTHER good win for Newmarket keeps them ahead of Littleport and Soham A who kept up the pressure, while Fordham are still in contention. Hiam finally got off the bottom of the table, picking up 11.5 points from two matches.
Surprise of the quarter finals in the Stan Aldous trophy was that Newmarket, unbeaten in the League, went out to lowly Bottisham. They now meet Littleport, who avenged their defeat by City of Ely in last year's final.
The other semi final will be between Fordham and Chippenham.

AFTER the previous setback, Isleham regained the leadership with a 62-19 trouncing of Littleport, just ahead of Newmarket who did not play. City went down to neighbours Beet but are well clear of Fordham.
The Bill Bayes Cup ties went to form: Littleport knocked out Fordham to set up a semi final with Soham B, conquerors of Stretham. Isleham made it through by one shot against Haddenham and now take on Newmarket.
LAST Monday's programme was disrupted by rain, causing cancellation or curtailment of most matches.
In Division One, Burwell found conditions to their liking at Fordham and notched up their biggest win of the season, while success at Sutton brought Littleport B within a point of leaders City of Ely.
Play was possible at Haddenham in Division Two, where Ely Beet suffered their second defeat, having earlier managed to fit in a rearranged game at Newmarket. There is no change in the order of the first six, Mildenhall losing out to Stretham to miss a chance to narrow the gap as Willingham stay on top.
