Round 13 - Teams & latest news

It’s a top-of-the table clash against Northcote Park with the Melican-Anderson Cup once again up for grabs.


Coming into the side are Justin White, Chris Long and Hayden Manuel. They replace Liam Brandt, Charlie Smythe (both injured), Nick Brannelly and Jake Chiminello.

While our club is making great strides on and off the field, one area we are lacking severely is quality furniture inside the De Winton Park social rooms. Once again, we had to borrow tables and chairs from our friends at Rosanna Bowls Club for last Saturday’s very successful 70thanniversary function. Apart from the inconvenience, it’s high time we had an upgrade.
Our first priority is to purchase some easy-to-store and manage tables and we are appealing to our generous sponsors, supporters and members for assistance.
Jo Esler has kindly put her hand up to coordinate the purchase of these new tables.
The tables fold like a table tennis table, are on castor wheels and will be easy to store. They cost $395 each and if you or your business care to donate you will receive a plaque with your name (or your business name) on the table. It will be a permanent reminder of your support.
If you can assist or you would like more information, call Jo on 0418 458 182 or email her on
