County Bowling Fixture Comes to Syston

On Tuesday 30th July, starting at 2.00pm, Leicestershire will play Herefordshire at the Syston Bowling Club. Spectators wishing to see bowling at County level will be warmly welcomed at the clubhouse and green situated within Central Park.
Club Chairman, George Dodge, pictured right, says: “We are delighted to have been accorded the honour of hosting a County fixture for the first time in many years. President of Bowls Leicestershire, Alan Bray, confirmed that the choice of Syston as a host venue had been greatly influenced by the many highly complimentary reports on the quality of the Syston green that he had received over the past two years.”
He continued: “We have spent a great deal of money and put in a lot of effort on improving the green over the past ten years. I would like to pay tribute to our retained specialist contractor, Chris Mews of Green Machine, and to warmly thank those Club members who have given their time and energies to transforming what was, by general consent, a very poor playing surface to what is now recognised as one of the best in the County.
Thanks are also due to the Syston Town Council for their co-operation and financial support for our green development programme over recent years.”
