Marine Gardens Bowling Club – Report w/ending 15, August 2021(August 15, 2021)
As bowlers we must be asking were has the summer weather gone, the number of matches in the latter part of July and early August rained off has been annoying to say the least. The latest casualty for Marine Gardens was Sundays West Sussex League match against the Witterings Bowls Club, which would have been our final league game for this season, the match points were shared between the clubs.
Monday Marine Garden were away to Goring Manor, in four rink friendly, played on a bright but breezy afternoon, Marine started well scoring at a steady rate per end, but Manor held their nerve and after breaking for tea came back strong to win the match on all rinks . Shots 60 -77 to Manor.
