Bognor bowl to two victories out of two

Bognor have given their West Sussex Bowls League hopes a big boost after two victories in the space of the week.

 

The Waterloo Place side had won just twice all year as they struggled for form.

 

But the past week has seen the A team beat two out of the top three to boost their hopes of finishing the season on a high.

 

The run started on the road at East Preston, where Bognor secured six points thanks to a 78-77 combined score.

 

Then at the weekend, they produced a shock by defeating table-toppers Worthing Pavilion A 93 to 71 to secure an eight point win.

 

Those two victories have lifted to third in the West Sussex Division One, albeit having played upto three more matches than others.

 

Fellow league one side Chichester A sit sixth in the nine-team division after splitting the points with Norfolk A.

 

Chi next play Southbourne at home on Tuesday while Bognor will travel to Crablands on Thursday. Both matches start at 2pm.

 

In Division Two, Pagham will be looking to bounce back from a heavy 87-71 defeat to Bognor B when they host bottom-side Storrington today. A comfortable win will lift the club back into contention to win the division.

 

In Division Three, third-place Chichester B travel to Middleton on Wednesday knowing a victory will lift them top.

 

Elsewhere, Selsey-based Little Spain Bowling Club travelled to Littlehampton- based Norfolk BC for a friendly match and came away with a 69-96 shot defeat despite winning on two rinks.

 

Jackie Mayzes, Chris Lankshear and Trevor Palmer (won 21-17) and Jack Sutherland, John Ballinger and Trevor Plaistow (won 21-17) were the stand out performers.

 

Little Spain finished the week with a 12-shot victory at home in another friendly match against RAFA.
