Sunderland’s Rod Campbell defied galeforce conditions to produce the result of the night in the Durham County District Two green fours finals at Barnes Park, by defeating Silksworth’s Billy Ferry 22-16.

Silksworth’s Scot Baker edged past Barnes West End’s Frankie Froud 18-14, while, having beaten the county champions, Silksworth’s Michael Laydon’s hopes were dashed by a fantastic final bowl by clubmate Terry Todd which sealed a 20-17 win.
