Melton Mowbray Town Bowls Club opened their outdoor season at Aylestone Park last month.

But a heavy green proved difficult for the visitors to master as they lost their first match by 25 shots on aggregate.

Back on home soil last Thursday, Town were also back on form, winning two of the three rinks to defeat Langham 60-49 overall.

Fred Thorpe’s rink played particularly well to wrap up their match 32-5.
