The Norfolk Indoor Bowls League season began for Browston A with an 150-mile round trip to Hunstanton.

Browston captain Mal French was concerned that he was short of half a dozen experienced bowlers for this match.

However, as it turned out he needn’t have worried as his replacements did him proud, delivering a resounding 85-65 win.

A notable feature of this match was the top Browston rink skipped by Mike Topping as it included his 12-year-old son, Jack, who together with John Allen and Tony Bridge romped to a fantastic 29 shots to 15 result.

Scott Turner, also with a much-changed block, made up of Bill Turner, Colin Butcher and Mal French, also assisted matters with a 18 shots to 10 win.

Another Browston youngster, 15-year-old Charlie Toplis, also figured in the success of Dennis Pratt’s squad together with Phil Ellis and Eddie MacDonald — coming home 21 shots to 16.
