Francis Drake Bowls Club


Potter Shield 2016: Fricker bowls a double!

Another lovely day at Francis Drake with some good bowls and, as usual, one or two surprise results along the way.

The BBQ was great as well, thanks Charlotte.

Congratulations to Dave Fricker (right) who won the Potter Shield. He is seen here being presented with the trophy by Club Captain Ron Phillips. Dave will add this shield to the Will Smith Trophy he won at the start of the season. It was no walkover. To win he had to knock out current club champion, Captain Ron and the three Singers, Mick, Jeanette and Dave! 

Mark (left) and Arthur (right) were the finalists in the Plate competition. Dennis (centre) was the marker and our thanks to all who marked on the day. Congratulations to Mark for winning but also well done to Arthur, the runner-up who will be 90 in a few weeks time. Ask Arthur, bowling keeps you young!
