Spalding Indoor Bowls Club round-up





Spalding Lightning are through to the last 16 of the Egham Trophy after a nerve-jangling victory over Huntingdon.

The match was a repeat of last season's national semi-final where Huntingdon won on an extra end.

This contest was equally competitive but Lightning had to show their fighting qualities to claw back a 20-shot deficit to see the match level with one rink playing their last end.

A cheque for £1,000 has been presented to Alison Morant, deputy CTL of the Tulip Suite at the Johnson Hospital. The money was raised by the ladies' sub-committee at Spalding Indoor Bowls Club with events like a recent cake stall, president's charity day, summer drives, Australian pairs games and the penny jar competition.
