Bowls: Sun shines on ladies match between Market Overton and Kibworth

They say the sun shines on the righteous so it was something of a bonus when one of the hottest days so far this summer was the setting for the Ladies Benevolent Match at Market Overton Bowling Club on Monday.

With clear blue skies overhead, the ladies from Kibworth Bowling Club, led by their president and captain, all smartly attired in their burgundy edged club shirts, challenged the Marko ladies captained by Ann Cusdin.

With four rinks playing triples on the lovingly cared for Marko green, The hosts supplied tea with sandwiches and home made cakes and although graciously conceded defeat to the visiting team were pleased to have been able to support this good cause.
