The draws have been made for the qualifiers for the Lincolnshire Indoor Bowling Association disciplines to be played internally at Stamford IBC in the forthcoming weeks.

With current county singles champion Stephen Harris now representing Spalding and unable to defend his title in Stamford colours, local bowlers are looking to still make a good show in the inter-club knock-out stages, with Stamford by far and away the best represented in the local qualifiers.

Christine Ford and Martyn Dolby are hoping to go one better in the mixed pairs having lost to Horncastle in last year's final but will first have to overcome Jeff and Jeanette Bourne in the qualifying first round.

Elsewhere the women are represented on equal terms against the men in the Open sets singles through Ford, Shirley Suffling, Denise Mackie, Helen Holroyd and Pat Jones.

The county semi-finals will be held at Horncastle on March 30 and the finals at Boston on April 28.
