l Bowls Lincolnshire County sides were in action again this week. Firstly the county were represented in a friendly fixture against Huntingdonshire at Parkway Bowls Club in Peterborough. Despite a valiant effort on a very fast green, Huntingdonshire came out on top.

On Saturday, the Bowls Lincolnshire Midland Counties League team played their match against Nottinghamshire at Newark Northern Bowls Club. The weather was fantastic and the green superb, but once again Lincs came second with Notts gaining most of the points available.

The Middleton Cup match between Notts and Lincs has been cancelled as neither county can qualify for the next stage of the competition.
