Stamford bowler Richard Montgomery produced a game-changer shot to clinch Lincolnshire's Midland Senior League victory over Notts at the Nottingham Bowls Centre.

With the match delicately poised and the overall scores only narrowly favouring Lincs, he produced the shot of the day, ditching the jack from a two-down position for an eventual four count. It not only put his rink of Mal Smith, Mick Owens and skip Bob Warters ahead for the first time in 19 ends - winning 21-19 - but clinched the six rink match aggregate.

Lincs won 120-111 and picked up 18 of the 22 points at stake.

John Little and David Heffernan also joined the Boston pairing of Keith Nix and Richard White to take rink honours 26-18. Scunthorpe, Lincoln and Horncastle clubs we also represented.


Christine Ford, from Ketton Bowls Club, has taken over as president of Northants Women's Bowling Federation. She succeeds Jessica Phillips who has held the post for the past year.

Her inauguration took place at the NWBF annual general meeting on Wednesday when Terri Handley, of Langtoft Bowls Club, was voted in as secretary to replace Liz Barr who has retired after several years in the post.

Chris is also a prominent member of Stamford Indoor Bowls where she is captain of the county mixed team. Married to Dick, she lives at Uffington, & said she is looking forward to her new role.

Joan Robinson is set to continue as captain of the county's Donald Steward team & Ann Cooper will carry on in a similar role with the Silver Vase team.
