New Member Wins New Boxing Day Trophy
At a time when most were recovering from Christmas Day, a new member of Erdington Court Bowls Club walked away with the honours - in a traditional competition that has been taking place for over 40 years!
Dave Wright from Minworth fought off all - comers in the Club's Jarrod Morgan Boxing Day morning competition, to claim the brand new trophy provided by the sponsors. The competition took over 2 hours and involved over 20 experienced and novice players - both men and women. The junior winner was Oliver Bathurst and Sandra Newey won the novices/ non bowlers trophy
Club Marketing Officer Ray Woods said,
"It was a great achievement for Dave who joined from another Club only about a week before.The competition has been organised by the Robinson family for over 40 years and this year, was sponsored for the first time by Jarrod Morgan Financial Planning of Lichfield. The mulled wine and food provided by the Robinsons went down a treat ! CHS Healthcare another sponsor kindly provided pens for the event. We are grateful to everyone involved."
