THE North Cambs English Bowling Federation outdoor finals were dominated by St Lawrence Bowls Club, competing in 11 of the 21 finals played and winning eight. Ralph Jackson was in great form for St Lawrence, winning in five of his six finals over the weekend.

Gorefield were also one of the top clubs competing in eight finals and winning four.

Spectators were treated to some great displays of bowls in very tricky conditions with intermittent rain and strong winds over the three days.

Paul Bennett, secretary of the North Cambs Bowling Association, said: "We would like to thank St Lawrence Bowls Club for hosting the finals and the umpires, Colin Griffin, John Fox, Steve Engledow and Cyril Betts."

All the winners will represent North Cambs in the National EBF finals at Skegness from August 19-23.
