Grantham and District Indoor Bowling Club defeated Newark by the slimmest of margins in a best of two games encounter.

Grantham won the first game at home by 126 to 80 shots to give them a 46-point advantage going into the second game at Newark on Saturday.

But it was not as easy a task as they had envisaged and they were defeated 137-92, but they just did enough to triumph over the two games by a single point.
