Belper Meadows Bowls Club (Division Four) met Allestree (Division One) in the Belper League Over 55 Handicap Cup.

The match took place on the neutral territory Belper Pottery green.

Meadows got off to a good start with two 21-20 wins - for Sandra Holland in the singles, and Janet and Terry Fletcher in the doubles, but then it was the turn of the Allestree bowlers to claw back the 35 handicap received by Meadows and with the last pair on the green, the tie was in the balance.

However, Meadows’ Allan Hampshire finally prevailed, coming from 14-9 down to win 21-17 to put Meadows into the quarter finals.
