Outdoor Bowls 2016


‘ As Captain of the Phoenix A Crown green bowling team I would like to congratulate everyone in the team for their support and achievement of winning the second division trophy for the second time and congratulations to Phoenix D for a hard fought battle and becoming runners up.’
After 4 years of Captaincy I will be handing over to Mike Bosson for the 2017 season.  I am sure he will do a fine job of running the team but I will still be there to give him any support he needs.
