SOBG members travelled to Woolston to play the annual return leg game with our long standing friends at Woolston Men’s Bowls Club.


SOBG’s mixed team play Woolston Men’s Bowling Club home and away each year for the honour of trying to win the “Bert Baker Trophy”.


The home and away shots from each team are added together each year to determine who holds the trophy for the next year.


This year SOBG team travelled to Woolston with high hopes of getting their hands on the coveted trophy as they were carrying a 5 shot lead over Woolston from their earlier home fixture held on 7th May.

Sadly SOBG, after an entertaining and fun afternoon trying to get to grips with Woolston’s challenging green, lost convincingly by 111 to 132 shots.


The coveted trophy therefore remains in the hands of Woolston B.C. for another year.

Congratulations to Woolston B C.

SOBG will just have to strive to do better next year.
