Bognor suffer double defeat

BOGNOR A will be hoping to pick up form fast after chalking up another home defeat in the West Sussex Bowls League.

 

The Waterloo Square side have won just one of their six games so far this term, leaving them towards the bottom of division one.

 

The latest defeat came against Littlehampton-based Norfolk, who registered a 76-67 victory on Saturday.

 

It was a bad weekend for Bognor, as the B team also lost, this time on the road at Arundel.

 

The 91-72 defeat leaves them third bottom in division two.

 

Bognor A now have a week off before travelling to Norfolk on July 3 and then hosting Crablands the following day.

 

Elsewhere in division two and Pagham’s good form continues  after a narrow 82-79 victory on the road at Tarring Priory A.

 

That win takes the Swansea Gardens side to within one point of top spot with a game in hand.

 

In division three, Chichester Priory Park B lost ground on the top sides after a home draw against Norfolk B.

 

Both teams scored 73 each, and took home five points to add to their league tally.

 

With Chi currently sitting in fourth and nine points behind the leaders, they will need a good second half of the season if they want to push on to take the title this time round.

 

Their next match is at Norfolk B on July 7, from 2.30pm.

 

Meanwhile, Selsey’s Little Spain welcomed Norfolk to their sun-drenched rinks for an entertaining friendly match.

 

Despite the home side winning on three rinks, it was the visitors who went away with the victory, when Little Spain lost by four shots, 73-77.

 

It was a busy week for the Spaniards as on Saturday a side travelled to Priory Park Chichester.

 

The home club enhanced their reputation as a top club in the county with a whopping 70 point victory in this friendly fixture.

 

Despite their heavy defeat, Little Spain members praised the hosts for their hospitality and wished them well in their quest to be crowned county champions this time round.
