Country Bowls gearing up for winter  

Country Bowls Club has seen a rise in new applications for membership with a mixture of experienced bowlers and newcomers to the sport of bowls joining our friendly club.

This week in the Alicante Southern League the Seahawks entertained El Rancho Pintos, the Seahawks players taking advantage of the home surface taking control on all the rinks only loosing on one rink by one shot. Taking the overall win 10 to 2, shots 112 to 64. Winning rinks are Christine Hughes, Della Wailes, Steve Wailes 23 to 14. Sheila Whitehall, Peter Robins, Peter Whitehall 24 to 8, Dave Smith, Craig Dyson, Darren Reynolds 22 to 13, Phil Newham, John Bentley, Barry Evans 26 to 11.

The Flamingos travelled to Emerald Isle, playing the Titans, never an easy place to go and get a result, although they only managed 1 winning rink all the other rinks competed well and finished fairly close, only losing the overall shots by 7, 85 to 92, points 2 to 10. The winning rink was Clive Hoyal, Derek Jiggins, William Miller 28 to 14.

The winter weather arrived with a vengeance on Friday causing the cancellation of our matches at home against La Siesta and away at Greenlands, so no report.

New members and guests are always made welcome at the only club in Murcia region competing in the Lavante Lawn Bowls Leagues, why not come along to one of our roll up mornings on Tuesday, Thursday or Sunday at 10 am.
