Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams staged a remarkable comeback to earn Cambridgeshire a share of the spoils in the weekend’s BDO Inter-Counties League Premier Division fixture against Warwickshire.

Anchor man Adams stepped onto the oche at the GER Club, March, with Cambs trailing 18-17 overall and he had to beat Warwickshire’s Charlie Symons to salvage the draw.

And that looked extremely unlikely as Symons whizzed through the first three legs. That meant Adams needed to win the last four legs of the match to snatch victory and earn Cambs the draw.

And, cool as you like, he pulled it off , finishing with a 4-3 win and an average of 27.44.

The top Cambs average of 28.00 belonged to men’s A team man Stuart Ward.

Cambs lost both men’s fixtures - the A team clash 7-5 and the B team battle 8-4 - but were victorious in both ladies games (5-1 and 4-2).

Adams, Dennis Harbour, Gary Robertson, Simon Hill, Terry Redhead, Chris Sands Pearce (2), Paul Wenn and Jane Judges all hit maximum 180s.
