Wealden Bowls news

WEALDEN Men’s relegation battle against Eastbourne, which was postponed over the weekend now looks to be even more significant after Eastbourne’s surprisingly easy victory over Arun. This now leaves Wealden two points behind their closest rivals and, with both teams now favourites to go down to Division 2, a maximum 11 points from this fixture becomes almost essential to their hopes of survival.
