4th Division

Our 2nd side is looking hard for a win after starting the season well, they need some consistency in the game to get a good result on the board.  That consistency was coming out on Saturday with one rink up a draw, and two rinks down by less than 10 on a low scoring game.  Over all it was close all day the team falling just short.

6-a-Side

Our two six aside teams have a number of new bowlers bowling with some experienced bowlers, while the results don’t show wins we are seeing the improvements in our new bowlers.  The mentoring they get now with the experience in the older players on this team will help them develop in to great bowlers down the line.
