TETLEY’S pair Denis and Barbara Dootson scooped the Padgate Festival Bowls crown.

The duo beat the Woolston pairing of Ian Porter and Pauline Cook in an excellent match which took one-and-a-half hours to complete.

Porter and Cook looked in control following an early lead and then from 10 across raced away to 19-12 with two counting bowls for game.

However with her last bowl, Dootson came in to win the end.

Porter-Cook took the following end to stand all, but the Dootsons held their nerve on the next three ends to run out 21-20 winners.

The cup and prize money was presented by club president Steve Brown.
