ELY AND DISTRICT BOWLS LEAGUE
TWO wins have brought Isleham to third place, their best position all season. Newmarket's lead over Littleport stretched to 10 points and Stretham gained two places from their victory over Ely Beet A.
City of Ely and Soham A drew and they will meet again in the final of the cup, having knocked out Ely Beet B and Chippenham respectively.
The singles competition has reached the semi-final stage with holder, Dennis Lewis, to play Brian Monaghan from Soham and Dale Spring, of Ely Beet, facing Peter Human from Newmarket.
LAST week's matches resulted in home wins and Newmarket, who earned maximum points from two games, advanced to second spot. They are now two-and-a-half points behind Isleham, whom they beat on both rinks. Soham B fell at Chippenham but the A team ended City of Ely's unbeaten run of six matches.

At the other end of the table, Mildenhall remain rooted to the bottom.

In the top of the table clash, they came back from Milton with five points to take the lead for the first time, but their journey to Haddenham in the Frank Turner Cup was unsuccessful. Haddenham B will meet Milton in the final, and they will be bidding to keep the trophy the A team won last year.
