IT has only taken 15 years, but now there are new winners' names on the Sharman Trophy.
The trophy, named after the original owners of the Cambs Times, was donated to Doddington Short Mat Bowls Club by the newspaper in 1987 and it became the first prize in the club's premier triples tournament.
However, as reported in the Cambs Times two weeks ago, the trophy was lost for 15 years after only five years of competition and 1991 winners, Mike North, John Scott and Rex Allebone, seemed destined to be the final names to be etched on the trophy.
Thankfully, the Sharman Trophy was discovered in a box earlier this year and on Sunday, players at the club competed for the distinctive shield once again.

The second place prize of £30 went to Robert Elmore, Joe Peters and Ray Boon, third prize and £15 were won by Barry and Stephanie Wade and John Franklin, and the fourth place prize of £9 went to Edward Elmore, Peter Loizou and Connor Kelly.
