DBE show Leicester County the WAY

Heavy rain and dangerous driving conditions across the country did not deter the players turning up for this celebration match.  After some initial delays, the introductions and exchange of DBE pennant and Leicester County plaque, the match finally got under way and DBE really did show Leicester the WAY.  From the off DBE took the lead and gently but surely increased their lead throughout the 18 ends.

Final score
Leicester County Celebrating 40 years

This match was held in celebration of Leicestershire County Bowls Associations 40th Anniversary.   Melton Mowbray Bowls Club hosted the event and their caterers provided some really good food after which there were a couple of speeches and a raffle.  DBE would like to thank the hosts and Leicestershire County for an excellent day.  Leicestershire want revenge and have asked for a return match next winter season.
