After a down season in 2017-18 Port Fairy’s chairman of selectors Steven Gibb is hopeful the club’s top grade side can push for a finals spot in the Western District Bowls Division’s Saturday pennant.
“We have similar personal to last year and we have similar ability,” he said.
“The top three teams are Warrnambool Gold, Koroit and City Red and the rest are aiming for fourth and that’s what our goal is.
“We have to try and win as many games on our home green as we can and try and 50-50 our away ones to push our case for fourth.”
Red finished second last behind Lawn Tennis in the previous summer. They enter their second round match-up against pennant favourite Warrnambool Gold with confidence after a 106-70 victory over Timboon Gold last Saturday.
Gibb said consistency was the key to being able to claim positive results against teams like Gold, Koroit and City Red.
“Keeping our best team on green is the focus,” the Red skipper said. “Being a small club we wont be able to have some people on the green most weeks but we will still be competitive despite that.”
