BOWLS: Landslide inspires return to form

A LANDSLIDE victory raised the spirits of ROLLS-ROYCE LEISURE after a couple of weeks of patchy form in the bowls arena.

A couple of cup exits and mixed fortunes in league competition had hit the Hucknall outfit.

But in the Notts Midweek Federation, Standhill were like lambs to the slaughter as Rolls triumphed 6-0 (66 shots to 14).

Janet Adams, husband Dave Adams and John Etches completeley outplayed their opponents, scoring an eight and two sixes en route to a 32-3 demolition.

Ann Taylor, Pauline Harvey and Alan Harvey followed this up with a 17-4 win, and the rout was completed by Lily Bennington, Stuart Newton and Alan Parker (17-7).

ROLLS slugged it out in a much tighter affair against Attenborough in Division Two of the Notts EBA Mixed League — coming home 5-2 (69-65) winners.

Maureen Gunn, Keith Powell and Geoff Gunn were 8-2 down before a six inspired a 22-14 victory. Ann Taylor, Terry Simpson and John Etches dominated ten of their 18 ends to win 21-16.

Defeats came for Janet Adams, Greg Umney and Alan Harvey, who let a 10-2 lead slip in a 17-14 reverse, and Lily Bennington, John Walker and Roy Walker, who lost out 18-12.
