Whittlesey Manor were narrow winners of the annual match against a Northants Bowling Federation representative team on Saturday. Its the third time the season curtain-raiser has been staged in Johns memory.

It’s the fourth time the event has been staged, with the Spalding League taking the honours in the first two.

The Westward club have been forced to withdraw two more teams from the Peterborough League owing to player shortages.

Westward Lions have been withdrawn from the Midweek League first division, and Westward Rhinos have been pulled out of the Weekend League second division.
