The Southport Federation team started their season at the end of April when they took on Clwyd Dragons in Division 6 of the National League. 

The home leg was played at Hesketh Bank and the team had a good 7-5 win against a strong Clwyd team. Among the winners were Chris Porter (21-19) and, winning the sweep, Kez Adams (21-9). 

The away team travelled to North Wales, where they went down to a 9-3 defeat on the tricky green at Abergele Bowling Club. The three winners were kitty winner Darren Edgerley (21-9), Mark Wilde (21-10) and Chris Harding (21-16). 

The result over the two legs was a 20-12 win for Clwyd Dragons. The team’s next National League fixture will be in June when they take on Eccles.
