Bowls Wiltshire Men in close Friendly with Herefordshire

Bowls Wiltshire Men played their latest Friendly against Herefordshire at Supermarine. Although at one point BWM were losing on all rinks they fought back to win on three but narrowly lost the game by 2 shots. Our thanks to Supermarine who agreed to host the match at very short noticed and did a great job.
