Scotter 1 are enjoying a fine season in the Gainsborough Standard Bowls League, and have captured the first piece of silverware.

The club, who lead the league after 15 outings, took the Knockout Shield thanks to a narrow win over a battling Rose A side, at Marshalls.

Scotter 1 were always in the lead, thanks to Les Savage, Viv Allison, and Dave Copley who totally dominated their opponents, and easily won 28-7.

Elsewhere Rose A were always struggling to overcome this deficit but a second half purple patch by Colin Allen, Carol Walker, and Dave Cox brilliantly won their rink 30-10 with another Rose A rink winning by four.

However, Scotter 1 had won rinks by 19 and 10, just enough to win 78-73.
