Local bowls teams to take part in new inter-district pennant

A PROPOSAL by Bowls NSW that Zone One run a No 1 inter-district pennant competition is likely to be adopted for next season.

This would probably be four sides from Northern Rivers and two from Tweed-Byron.

A decision would have to be made on Clarence River which currently plays pennants at no higher than No 3s.

Zone One president Kevin Soward said this would be a local premier league and would result in a higher standard of play.

Sydney has just finished its No 1 competition, held this year for the first time among five metropolitan clubs. It was won by Merrylands from St Johns Park in a final in which went so long that darkness ended play early at 61 ends, with Merrylands one shot ahead.
