Victoria men recorded their first victory of the winter against Isle of Wedmore.
VICTORIA Bowling Club men were inspired by the recent win by the ladies to record their first victory of the winter, beating Isle of Wedmore by 20 shots.
In a four-rink game, Victoria won on three rinks with pride of place going to an excellent 15-shot rink win by Pete Wyatt, Graham Richards, Dave Fairhurst and skip Mike Stocker.
Club captain Cliff Chudley is convinced this change of fortune coupled with the new year will see many more positive results during the remainder of the winter season.
