On the 14th week of the Hollinsend Park winter doubles round robin competition, 32 players turned out with Graham Bland and Geoff Ball sharing the winners’ spoils, closely followed by Syd Adlington and Eddie Eblet.

Five months into the winter bowling season and the weather has its first victims with Millhouses Park and Armthorpe Welfare finally waving the white flag.

Their greens were unable to withstand the weekend’s deluge and last Sunday’s entertainment was waterlogged off.

This should come as no surprise to anyone who was present at the Bolsover Colliery green the day before with the third and fourth matches postponed due to the double dose of lightning and a flooded surface.

Prior to the lightning, the scores at Bolsover were Georges 61 Pilsley 72, Matlock 72 Bolsover 67.

League positions: Pilsley 952 points from 13 games, Bolsover 951/13, Maltby 939/12, Eastwood Park 930/12, Matlock 780/13, Old Whittington 738/12, Calow 737/12, Georges 724/13.

The green will now be given a week’s rest to dry out and the next round of fixtures will take place on February 8. There are also doubles and singles knockout competitions planned for March 1 and 8 respectively.
