THE City of Ely bowls club suffered a disappointing defeat at the hands of Peterborough in the latest round of the Denny Cup at the weekend.
The match between the sides was always going to be a tight encounter but Ely approached the tie full of confidence after good wins against St Neots and March in the previous two rounds. Ely, however, managed to win only one of the four rinks with Nick Brett securing victory over his opponent, Martin Durber, 20 - 18.
At home Greg Harlow shared the spoils with a 15 - 15 score line against Stuart Popple whilst Andrew Easy lost by one shot to Jeff Newson. The decisive rink proved to be away where Jamie Reynolds suffered a 27 - 10 defeat against Ean Morton making the overall score 79 - 63 in favour of Peterborough.
There was better news for the club in the Lingford Trophy though with the team, securing a comfortable first round win against Boston. Both Ellen Falkner (26 - 15) and Sarah Seymour (30 - 8) guided their respective teams to victory. The ladies play Huntingdon in the next round on Sunday 30th December.
