Today SOBG welcomed Vectis to Southampton Old Bowling Green.

The Vectis team is made up by members from various bowls clubs on the Isle of Wight. These players get together during each bowls season to play a few friendly games with other clubs. Today Vectis brought over to the mainland, 28 players who were keen to play on our green.

To accommodate this number of players, our green keepers changed our green from the normal 6 rinks to 7 rinks.

Once again the weather was kind and although there were grey skies at times, the rain held off throughout the afternoon.

SOBG could not manage to field a team of 28 players today, but with 25 players we were able to play 4 rinks of 4 players and 3 rinks of 3 players.

SOBG emerged as winners once again with a score of 178 to 87 shots.
