Clitheroe’s father and son pair of Eric and Adam Wallace beat all-comers from an entry of 64 pairs to win the Waddington Floodlight Open Doubles bowling competition.

After two weeks of qualifying rounds the final eight assembled on Thursday night to play for the title.

In the quarter finals Adam and Eric took on Blackburn’s Paul Brett and Dave Hoyle and ran out 21-10 winners.

The semi final was a repeat of last year’s final against Dave Walker and Arron Harrison but this time the Clitheroe pair reversed the result, winning 21-14.

In the final, against Burnley pair Matt Harrison and Phillip Wilkinson from St Andrews, Adam and Eric were never in trouble as they ran out 21-11 winners, much to the delight of the many spectators who had supported the event, sponsored by Bowland Brewery.
