SIDFORD Short Mat Bowling Club will be fielding an extra team in the Evening Division of the East Devon and District League this autumn.Following a successful open day in November last year - as part of the centenary celebrations for Sidford Social Hall - a group of new members expressed a desire to play more competitive bowls. It is this group which will form the nucleus of the new team.Chairman, Jean Frewin, said: 'We are naturally delighted to be in a position to field the extra team, especially at a time when some clubs, unfortunately, are having to withdraw teams from the league. Our new players are excited at the prospect of playing league bowls and we wish them well for the new season. Some of them have improved enormously this year, considering they had never bowled before last January.
