Great Yarmouth and District Bowls News from John Vince
ONCE again another Don Pearce Cup final was very well supported even though the weather was not co-operating, but it was a very keenly fought match between Martham A and Runham.
Martham soon put their stamp on the game. It was, for a while, backs to the wall for Runham.
A 22-9 score at five ends which increased to 46-24 at 10, made Runham's task all the more difficult as the game progressed.
It worsened at 15 ends to 70-35, and the final score was 88-45 to Martham A with Runham winning just one rink.
Once again the refreshments provided by the host club Martham were top class and very much appreciated by all.

The weather then worsened, but was too late to spoil the evening.
In Division One, a joyful week for Hickling with a home win against Runham 77-63 (6-1) and then, at a time when miracles hardly happen, they won away at Martham A in a very close match 75-72 (5-2).
But Martham A were soon back on track, beating visitors Rollesby 98-53 (7-0).
Rollesby had already suffered at Gorleston Conservatives, losing 64-86, just picking up half a point.
Woodbastwick playing at Acle won 79-67 (5.5-1.5), and then in the return match at Woodbastwick the result was in reverse with Acle winning 82-64 (6-1).
Acle had already been victorious at Filby A 84-66 for a (5-2), and Woodbastwick finished the week with a good home win against Potter Heigham 105-59 (6-1).
In Division Two, the leaders Northgate continue in their winning run with two home wins first against Caister A 120-51 (7-0) and then Caister B 102-72 (6-1).
A mixed week for Filby B, going down 64-77 (1.5-5.5) at Martham B, and then going down 74-82 (2-5) at Caister B.
But on a brighter note, playing at home to Caister A, they won a very close match 77-76 (5-2).
Repps at home to Caister A came in with a 95-79 (6-1) win but then playing at Gorleston EBF they had to concede 79-95 (2-5).
These results have given Northgate a bit more space at the top. Match fees will be due soon.
The dinner date has been set for October 18.
