SOLIHULL Indoor Bowls Club successfully hosted the first Warwickshire men’s county match of the new season at the weekend.
The only disappointment for the hosts was that the county, which included several SIBC players were beaten 97-148 by a strong Leicestershire team.
But the only winning Warwickshire rink was made up of SIBC players, George Morrison, Rick Lewis, Dave Bundy and Jack McPhun.
SIBC men were more successful in the first round of the Over-60s Double Rink National Competition, winning both rinks to beat Banbury 51-24.
SIBC’s mixed team continued their undefeated start to the season with home victories over Handsworth Wood (118- 75) and a thrilling win over Leominster, where a 110-108 victory was achieved on the last end of the game.
