AT home to top of the table Dereham the Men's C team were hoping for a win, realistically by 5-2. They won 94-50 (7-0) which put them into second spot in the league after a good team per-formance with promotion looking a distinct possibility.

Daniel Seabourne, Cliff Horsfield, Alan Kendall and Ashley Smith were 6-1 up at five ends and then 9-7 at 10, 13-9 at 13 ends. They scored a six on the 14th and with all four players in good form they went on to win 26-11.

Russell Thurtle, John Arnold, Bill Downie and Pat Beales scored a five on the third end and another five on the fourth to go into a 10-3 lead, restricting the opponents to only ones and twos and picking up shots where possible they were 21-10 up at 15 and won 26-14.

Roy Roofe, Ron Taylor, Bert West and Brian Grint scored a five on the seventh end to lead 9-5. This was followed by some excellent bowling and at 15 ends they were 20-8 up. Again restricting the opposition to only ones they ran out 22-12 victors.

Keith Owen, Jim Cole, Ray Smith and Mick Askham were 8-1 up at five ends, 11-7 at 10, 16-9 at 15 and again the opponents were kept to only ones as they went on to win 20-13.

Away to Browston, the Ladies B team were aware they had won the league but wanted a win would finish the season in style.

The 47-48 (2½-5½) result was disappointing but they have amassed 82½ points to win the Yare League by a comfortable margin and the laughter at the photo call after the game said it all (see page 8).

Edna Land, Dawn Horne and Jenny Kirby scored a four on the seventh end to lead 7-5, scored another four on the 13th to go 13-8 and won 13-12.

Janice Wilson, Pat Pegram and Anne Drury scored a four on the second end and by seven ends were 10-5 up, scored another four on the 11th to go 14-8 and finished winning 15-9.

Jean Ryan, Rose Yaxley and Amy Brooks were 4-3 at four ends, five each at seven, seven each at 11 and finished eight each.

Ros Myhill's block were five each at four ends, dropped a five on the sixth end came back to 10-12 at 10 but dropped another five on the 11th and finished 11-19.
