CHARD’S lawn green bowlers began their season with a very close match at Lyme Regis last Friday.

The visitors just edged it 64-61 with the captains playing out a tied game.

On Saturday Chard visited Severalls when the forecast heavy rain happily failed to materialise.

But a biting wind still resulted in cold conditions which made controlling and holding the woods difficult.

Chard lost 59-54 despite winning on three of the four rinks.
