Stamford players dominate Fed finals

Federation bowlers who play in the Stamford and District outdoor league have a chance to make a clean-sweep at the Northants Federation Finals which take place at Peterborough IBC at Burton Street on Sunday (March 18).
They compete in all 11 men’s, women’s and mixed finals, with Martyn Dolby, due to celebrate his 70th birthday the day before, facing the major workload appearing in four finals – one fewer than two years ago when he competed in five.
He will be defending the two-bowl mixed triples with Adam Warrington and Christine Ford and the men’s four-bowl singles against Warrington. He plays Joe Martin in the senior singles and teams up with Ford in the mixed pairs against Josh Clark and Julie Masters.
Ford also plays three times as does Stamford IBC club colleague Helen Holroyd.
