Portishead Men got their season underway on the opening day with the traditional Captain v Vice-Captain match. This fixture is thinly disguised as a match but is, in reality, an excuse to get together again, flex the long unused muscles, blow away the cobwebs and enjoy the delight that is outdoor bowls. The weather was just right and a good time was had by all, but there has to be a winner, and this year it was the Vice-Captain's team that were victorious. Well done them!
Portishead played their first actual match this afternoon, a Mixed Friendly, at home, against Ardagh. It's
always a pleasure to welcome Ardagh to our Club and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the game. The weather nearly held off and there was just a little light rain for the final few ends. The result wasn't important (from which you will gather we didn't win) and our thanks go to Ardagh for making the afternoon so enjoyable.
We will seek revenge at the end of May in the return fixture.
