ELY AND DISTRICT BOWLS LEAGUE

Men's League

THE shock result of the opening day of the season came at Soham, where the B team had a whitewash over Fordham.

The A team enjoyed a narrow five-shot victory at City of Ely.

The biggest win was Ely Beet B's 38-shot margin at Haddenham, while the A team could only manage half a point in going down to champions Newmarket.

Ladies' League

STRETHAM were the best of the first performers, winning on both rinks at Chippenham, as last year's winners City of Ely were held to a draw by Soham A.

There were 4-1 away victories for Newmarket and Fordham.

Afternoon League Division 1

MITCHELL Lodge's defence of the trophy began with a defeat by Soham and there were losses for all three of the promoted sides - Newmarket A, Chippenham and Hiam.

Bottisham A, Haddneham A and Littleport B all won 5-1 at home and Burwell won by the same scoreline away.

Afternoon League Division 2

BOTH Fordham teams were relegated last year and started the 2007 campaign with mixed fortunes, B beating Bottisham B and A losing at Sutton.

Mildenhall finished well adrift in Division 1 last year, but came out on top against Cottenham in their first encounter in the second division.
