On Monday, May 27, Lancing played their latest Brodie match at home against Worthing Pavilion.

The day was sunny but windy and the green bowled well, even though there were a fair number of weeds growing in its surface.The games were played in a very friendly manner. However, Worthing took early leads in the pairs and one of the triple matches.

The second trip was closer, and the rink led by Roy Waddup held a healthy lead going into tea. However, as they say everything changes after tea. Worthing pulled further away and eventually won all four games, finishing with 73 shots to Lancing’s 44 shots, winning all 10 points on the day.
