SAINTS MARCHED OUT OF FIVES CONTENTION

Paul Maynard, the Aylesbury bowler who won the Stamford Open Indoor Singles last October, showed little compassion when a Stamford Saints team visited his Foxhill club at the weekend in a bid to reach the latter stages of the EIBA Fantastic Fives competition.

In the four-discipline event, for which the visitors had qualified out of their group, Maynard beat Tony Barwell 12-5 in the singles, then turned over Barwell and Jeanette Bourne 24-7 in the pairs to help claim an overall eight-points victory.

But the cumulative 49-23 shot win didn't paint a full picture. Jeanette and husband Jeff with Judy Barwell and David Howarth only lost the fours 7-5 while Jeff, Judy and David were pipped in the two-bowl triples 7-6.

SUMMER LEAGUES REACHING A CLIMAX

With just a handful of matches to play, the Stamford Indoor Bowls Club's summer season of fixtures is reaching an exciting climax.

There is all to play for in the Monday evening triples with four teams separated by just four points - Paul Galloway's Alpha on 25 points, leading Echo (George Cameron) by one, Delta (Terry Weaver) by two and Charlie (Arthur Chapman) by four.

Runaway leaders in the Tuesday pairs are Tulips (Peter Edwards) on 26 points, with Lavender (Garry Oliver) on 17 ahead of Paul Green and Tim Stokes.

David Howarth's Wakes are comfortably top of the Wednesday first division triples by eight points from Cameron and Weaver, while evergreen Hazel Cotterill and Jeanette Wynn battle to stave off relegation to the second division where Edwards, Oliver, Ian Hall and Janet Lonslow are chasing promotion.

Galloway's Daimler triples team are also top of the show on Friday - seven points clear of Wayne Aspinall and Green.
