Lee-on-the-Solent friendly


Sobg v Lee-on-the-Solent away 28th May 2016


On Saturday 19 members and 2 guests from SOBG travelled by coach for a friendly away fixture at Lee on the Solent Bowls Club.


SOBG were down to 5 rinks only due to the fact that other members were representing the club in the “Top Club” competition away to Andover.


Having travelled the short distance to Lee-on-the-Solent SOBG arrived and were unexpectedly short of  one player, however this was soon remedied by Lee on the Solent kindly lending us 1 player to enable us to make up the 5 full rinks. 


The weather was exceptionally kind as the sun shone and temperatures’ rose.


After an exciting and noisy afternoon out on the green, SOBG emerged as winners with a 5 shot difference of 102 to 97.


We will now look forward to the return match when Lee on the Solent Bowls Club come to Southampton Old Bowling Green on Sunday 31stJuly 2016.
