Country Bowls Club commenced its winter league campaign with a team in each of 3 divisions in both Monday and Friday LLB Leagues, also for the first time entering the Wednesday Winter League.

Our Winter League Cabelleros were first to play on Wednesday 4th October with a home win 6 points to 4 against Emerald Isle and then travelled up to the newly forms Javea/Calpe on 11th and collected a hard earnt 4 points, a solid start to the season.

On Friday 13th October the Panthers travelled to play Greenland Cedars and found the green to their liking, only losing on 1 ring, 8 points in the bag 96 shots to 65. A special mention to Brian Jiggins, Sue Hudson and President Derek Jiggins getting top rink!

On Monday 16th our Flamingos travelled to San Miguel for their match in the Enterprise Division and found it hard going on the newish carpet and longer green. 2 rinks battled away and could have got some points, but it was not to be. But a superb performance by Jayne and Kevin Storey and new cap Roger Grimshaw made sure we collected 2 points.

In the Discovery Division Seahawks entertained El Rancho Raiders and soon took advantage of the home surface winning on all but 1 rink, 10 points to 2, 97shots to 64. A great start to the season sitting on the top of the league. Congratulations to the top rink of Micheal Jordon, Del Gunning and Peter Robins winning 27 shots to 10.

In the Voyager Division our new team the Ravens made a great start against the Greenland Cedars at home, winning on 3 rinks, points 8 to 4, 92 shots to 64.

On Friday 20th October Geckos entertained last years winners of the A Division Quesada Swallows and came out on top with a fine win 8 points to 4, 96 shots to 83. Top rink goes to Barry Evans, Dennis Wade and Jeff Hiers 22 shots to 12.
