We are now nearing the end of the current bowls season with only four veterans matches still to be played. This year we had a seven teams in play including an extra team in the Welcome League making 139 league matches played in total.
The annual meeting of the Bowls section took place on Monday 15th September, with 24 members going to dinner at the Toby Carvery afterwards.
In the FABA league our A team finished fourth in division 3 while the B team ended up being relegated from division 5 to division 6 by only one point.
In the Lytham St Annes league our two teams were both in division 2 with the A team winning the division by 39 points, losing only one game in the whole season. The B team finished in fourth place, only five points away from Second place. We have indicated to the league that we will be unable to raise a team on a Friday night and do not wish promotion to division one next year.
In Division 1 of the Lytham Veterans league we still have four games to play and although three of the remaining games are against the top three teams in the league we are 25 points away from the relegation zone so should be safe.
In the Welcome league the A team has been relegated from division 2 to division 3 by only one point. The narrowness of this fate is shown by the fact that we gained 75 points with the teams above us having 76, 77, 77 and 79 points respectively.
Our new B team in the Welcome League finished safely in mid table in division four winning eight games out of 16
