NOT even torrential rain could put a dampener on Sabden Bowling Club’s final competition of the year.

The annual Autumn Floodlit Singles competition was contested by 16 finalists, with Stuart Gall the deserving victor, defeating Mick Opie 21-13 in the final.

He was presented with the trophy and a cheque for £300 by County Coun. Albert Atkinson, deputy leader of Lancashire County Council.

Organiser John Robinson thanked the sponsors, raffle donors, the players and the volunteers for helping make the event a success.
