The Cowra Bowling Club are not worried about trying to replicate past glories such as the 2018 Premiership, and are looking to new players to make new successes for the club.

Bowling Club batsman Chris Day is excited by the new faces that his side are blooding and isn’t worried about his side’s slow start in the Lachlan Premier League.

While the Bowling Club have only won one match so far, a win against the undefeated Royal Colts can put them a game behind the third-placed Cowra Valleys. 

They will, however, depend on those newer players to step up, with players like the Berry brothers missing large portions of the year.

“We have had a lot of player turnover from last year... so we’ve blooded a few kids, a couple of 15, 16 year-olds that we’ve got very high hopes for,” Day said. 

Some of those younger players, like Aiden Roberts and this week’s debutant Joseph Waters, have come through the club’s seconds side. 

“We [the senior side] have a fair bit to do with second-grade and trying to develop some players through there that can step up into first grade,” Day said.  

“We’re a pretty close-knit bunch... we’ve built a pretty strong club over the last four or five years.”
