Tin Tabs Winter Bowling

Freshfield bowling club members are enjoying their first season of competitive winter bowling this year.

The Maghull winter league chose the club, in Timms Lane, as one of two locations for the games.

Every Saturday, bowlers from 16 clubs play in a team of two pairs. Each pair gains a point if they win and if both pairs win then the overall team gains three points.

It's early days yet, but both of the Freshfield teams have scored well and look likely to be in the final reckoning at the end of the season.
