Grantham and District Bowls Association held its annual President versus Chairman game at Great Gonerby, home green of president Paul Jones, on Saturday.
The chairman’s team was captained by former chairman Tim Harwood, as Paul Jones is also the association’s current chairman – so a ‘win win’ situation for Paul.
As it was, the President team emerged victorious by 77 shots to 62.
