Short Mat Bowls
Dave Smith – Sports Editor
West Chiltington short mat bowls team played against the strong Littlehampton based, Norfolk Bowls Club, in the County Knockout Cup.
The Captains team of Sylvia & Brian Woolcott and Jenny & Roland Naldrett, had a good 22-11 win but the opposition proved too strong on the day and the Chilts lost the match 37 – 28.
The Chilts have always found the Crawley based Downsmen team difficult to beat so the away match against them did not give the Chilts too much confidence in a victory. The Downsmen took an early lead but the Chilts fought back with the Captains team running out 27 – 18 winners Chilts ended up with an overall 47 – 40 win and 4 well-earned points.
