THE indoor bowls season is drawing to a close.

The finals have taken place at Stevenage Leisure Centre IBC.

Their men's final saw a close game running over 25 ends with Colin Cole emerging as the winner by a single shot to take him to the necessary 21 shots. The ladies had a slightly shorter game with Angela Newstead the winner.

Cole made a long afternoon of it as he was also in the pairs competition with his wife Sue - and they managed to win!

The ladies versus gents match saw the men win!

Their presentation evening is at the CIU club in Stevenage Old Town next Friday (April 28).
