A Brodie Tray match was played at Lancing Bowling Club against Southwick Bowling Club.

This was a game of two halves with the first half being very close, score wise, however, at the end of the game, Lancing only managed to win one rink, lead, by Phil Hillsden, the score 15-13. Disappointingly, the result was 87-54. 8-2 on points win to Southwick.

Another Stracey Shield game came against Worthing Pavilion, who were on fire, and a difficult day for Lancing, who through several reasons unable to field the strongest team. All four rinks lost giving the Pavilion the deserved win, with the overall score 90-42 /10-0 points.

The regular Tuesday evening league game, Brighton & Hove DL Division 2 League, should have been played on 21st against Vicarage at Lancing. Somehow there was a mix up on where it was being played as Vicarage Bowling Club did not turn up. Disappointing for the players, but they then turned into a positive, playing an enjoyable practise game between themselves and afterwards enjoying refreshments which Paulette Salter had arranged.
