Ely and District Bowls League
JUNE was a good month for Fordham, winning all of their seven matches, the last being at Soham which cost the A team their lead. The lead is now held by Newmarket and Littleport sit behind Soham in third place on 56 points, followed by three teams on 54, Ely Beet B, City of Ely and Fordham.
Chippenham had a double success including 105-45 victory over Cottenham which has put their shot difference well in credit.
THE biggest upset of the week came from bottom club Ely Beet earning their first bonus at Soham A and doing it again at Soham A and then doing it again at home to Newmarket.
Soham B remain on top of the table despite going down at Haddenham, but second place Isleham had earlier overcome Haddenham to reduce the lead to two points.
The singles competition has reached the quarter-final stage; two City of Ely club mates Hilda David and Gloria Isaacson are drawn together and Soham's Carole Galley plays Marion Bysouth. City of Ely's Margaret Reeder will meet Sylvia Pinder from Isleham and Helen Brennan of Newmarket is at home to Haddenham's Joy Evans.
Afternoon League Division 1
THE clash between the top two teams ended in an overall draw. Littleport A got an extra point to stay on top, but Willingham still have two games in hand.
Of those playing twice only Fordham B won both matches, giving them a cushion over the bottom six at the season's mid-way stage.
Afternoon League Division 2
MILTON held on to their lead by gaining all six points at Bottisham B. The vastly improved Hiams team, who just missed out on promotion last year, sit in third place in front of Newmarket B and Sutton who came down from Division 1. Chippenham slipped to sixth but are only one point off third spot.
