Against last year's winners Melton, Stamford IBC's Bulls team in the Fantastic Fives inter-club league, were hoping to make a fast start to their series of summer matches.

However, on the slower Melton surface they found the opposition too experienced conceding six of the eight points available and losing in shots 33-49.

Peter Edwards gave Stamford a bright start with a 17-10 singles defeat of L Parnell on shorter jacks before June Brennan, Peggy Birch, Glenys Edwards and Wayne Aspinall went down 4-14 in the fours. 

Aspinall and Edwards were unable to get the better of S Dixon and Don Welch in the pairs after dropping a trio of three-counts when 7-2 ahead and finally Brennan, Birch and Glenys Edwards lost 5-11 in the triples.
