Back in action

IN preparation for another busy outdoor season, Llanelli Bowling Club held a warm-up practice match in cold conditions on Saturday to officially open their Old Road green.

Once again the 106-year-old club, the oldest in the area, will compete in two leagues, starting their bid for honours in the Welsh Private Greens Western Section with an away match against Prince of Wales Court, Porthcawl, tomorrow (Thursday) and hosting Gowerton on Saturday.

Their first woods in the Carruthers Shield will be against Parc William a week on Saturday (May 5), while their Llanelli and District League campaign starts at the end of May.

Their captain this season is Ifon Jones, with Peter Dunkley the vice-captain.
