Doncaster & District Bowls Association bounced back from defeat to overcome Fylde A in the Federation National League Division Four, writes Adam Morgan.

A new-look Doncaster team moved on from their narrow defeat in their league opener against Bury and celebrated nine winners out of 12 at Brodsworth.

That was backed up by a solid performance at Raikes in Blackpool by the away team - which included a winning debut from Callum O’Brien - who lost by just three chalks, having had six winners each.
