COMMUNITY GROUPS ENJOY GREAT CHASE WIN, DRAW NOT ENOUGH TO MAKE FINAL Tier changes for bowlers
Shepparton RSL will drop down a tier for the coming Goulburn Valley Bowls Division season.
Following an eventful winter, which resulted in the club moving to Shepparton Park, members decided its two sides will compete in division two and division four this year.
Last season, Shepparton RSL fielded a top tier side as well as teams in division three and division six during Saturday pennant.
Club chairman Ron Thorp said members recently came to the conclusion they change sections.
‘‘We have decided to go down a division in an effort to remain competitive and we lost a few wanted to players over the last few months and in order to remain competitive the members felt it was best to step back a little bit,’’ he said.
‘‘The decision was made a bit over a week ago and we’ve been in talks with the GVBD since then and they had to alter the fixtures to accommodate us a little bit.’’
Shepparton RSL now use Shepparton Park’s greens after the RSL sub-branch made the decision to turn the Wyndham St bowling green into a car park.
