Deniliquin RSL Bowling Club president Tony Tonta will look to build on the success of last season, as its bowlers prepare for round one of the Campaspe Valley Bowls Division.
RSL had a fantastic season last year, winning premierships in Division Three and Five, while also returning to Division One for the first time in 18 years.
The club will once again contest these three divisions, with Tonta hopeful of more success.
‘‘It’s tough to build on success from winning two pennant flags but we’re hoping we can notch up a few more wins in Division One this year,’’ he said.
‘‘We’ve signed a few new bowlers that will make their debuts on Saturday (tomorrow).
‘‘We’ve also welcomed some more experienced bowlers to the club that have boosted our stocks.
‘‘There’ll be a bit of shuffling around this season so we’ll keep plugging along and hopefully can return to finals again.’’ Teams for round one are as follows: Division One vs Rochester at Rochester, cars depart at 11am: Craig Taylor, R Reid, D Greaves, M Quor (s); J Jennings, F Daniels, T Taylor, K Wellard (s); M Howe, T Tonta, G Thomson, L Harris (s).
Division Three vs Moama at Moama, cars depart 11.30am: R Parker, P Liefting, L Pattinson, A Webster (s); C Frampton, Chris Taylor, Bruce Clancy, R Marchetti (s); W Pattinson, P Kotkin-Smith, C Hillier, J Tonta (s).
Division Five vs Echuca at home: B Leetham, D McCalman, G Gordon, K Lester (s); J Lowe, D Stanmore, J Kemp, N Austin (s).
