New members a vital boost

Skegness Indoor Bowls Club

THERE has been an influx of much needed new members at the start of the indoor season – a trend it is hoped will continue over the coming months.

County league matches will begin shortly, so teams are urged to make their captains aware of their availability.

In the club leagues, it is very doors but last year’s champions and runners-up in the afternoon trips division one, Comets and Cocktails, are trailblazing with two wins apiece; while in division two, Fords have a similar record.

In the evening trips division one, newly promoted Newbys issued a firm statement of intent with two good wins over experienced opponents.

In division two, new teams Figmants and Neighbours had contrasting starts, the former scoring heavily in two victories, while the latter suffered two defeats in what appears to be a very competitive division, with U-Got-It also securing two victories.

In the morning football league, a new alarm clock is needed for Peter Haines, who failed to turn up for Wolves, but his team mates overcame the handicap and still managed a victory thanks to the county president Mac Holland. Spurs lead the way in the league with two narrow wins.

In the EBA league, there were good wins for Plebs, Countrymen and Hopefuls, with Genuines and Layabouts sharing the spoils.
