Bowls – New Season

Soroptimists from South Lancashire have held their pre-season bowls meeting at SI Southport’s clubhouse.

The Region’s annual competition brings together teams from several clubs for keenly-fought matches each summer.

This year teams from Crosby, Leigh & District, Liverpool, Southport and Widnes Soroptimist clubs will be competing. SI St Helens may also field a team.

There are two trophies played for: the team rosebowl and the Tricia Fahey cup for an individual player. (Tricia, of SI Crosby, was a past Federation President and founder of the competition.)

The draw took place and captains will now be arranging fixtures.

The final will take place on 1st September, at Pennington Park in Leigh.

Dot Massey, who co-ordinates the competition said: “A big thank you to Southport Soroptimists for their hospitality.

“I notice their members were debating over the colour of new kit. Let’s hope this year’s competition is as lively as the colour chart.”

Dot still uses Tricia’s file for the competition admin – a simple reminder of a very special woman.
