Terry Lichkin won the singles title at the 18th Maccabi lawn bowls finals at Bishopswood Bowls Club in Finchley.

Lichkin, from Wanstead Central Bowls Club, beat Frank Dryer of Bishopswood 21-13 in an entertaining encounter.

The mixed pairs trophy was won by the mother and son team of Barbara and Andrew Cohen for the third year in a row. They beat Bishopswood pair Ruth Harris and Dryer 17-11.

The men's pairs event was not as successful for the other half of the Cohen family - Alan and James - who were beaten by Michael Daniels and Brian Miller. Michael had to bowl the last wood of the match trailing by two shots. He moved the jack to the back of the green to score three shots to win the game.

In the Mel Richfield Cup, held in memory of Maccabi's first chairman, Douglas Greenston beat Godfrey Sheldon in a 2-wood competition.
