Victoria Bowls Club indoor members have enjoyed a busy start to the new season.

VICTORIA Bowls Club indoor members have had a busy start to the season with a new enlarged division of the fours competition, together with the triples and mixed league competitions.

The first indoor inter-club game of the season saw a Victoria mixed team ease their way past North Petherton by 11 shots with two rink wins skipped by Mike Taylor and John Newman.

In a first-ever indoor fixture against Puriton, the away rink skipped by Margaret Hillman found the rink very fast, but lost the game by just four shots. The home rink proved to be a close game, with just one shot in favour of Puriton deciding the result.

Victoria 66, North Petherton 55: C Sage, M Milliner, C Chudley, S Newman 19-21; P Wyatt, C Stevens, M Chudley, M Taylor 25-18; S Milliner, E Sage, E Newport, J Newman 22-16.
