Bobby Walker

Saturday 16 July 2022 sadly saw the passing of one of Borough Bowling Clubs longest serving members and possibly most decorated players, the great Bobby Walker
Until he recently became ill there wasn’t anybody at Borough who hadn’t been helped by Bob
Bobby had been a member of Borough for around fifty years winning every trophy at the Club on at least one or more occasions, and many many merits on the East Coast circuit
He was also selected for the East Coast Inter-District Team on a number of occasions 
As soon as you stepped on the green as a member at Borough Bobby was instantly your friend.
He would offer advice from the side and regularly come onto the green to coach you if he felt you needed it.
He would never fail to encourage you and even sometimes “put you right” when he felt you needed it
Bob may have been small in size but whenever he stepped out to bowl in a match he would  put fear in opponents hearts when he boldly announced “I am Boroughs number one bowler you know” .
There were not many people who could deny this
We have sadly lost one of the clubs most colorful characters and certainly one of our best ever bowlers
RIP Bobby Walker
Bob’s Funeral will be at Woodlands Crematorium at 4pm on Thursday 4th August

ITS BACK !!!! The Kids Club starts this THURSDAY

Barry took early control of the game running up an 8-2 lead and then  a 16-11 lead but Rita came right back and at 19-17 in front looked favourite for the cup
Barry then bowled 4 consecutive immaculate ends to take the cup 21-19
Next up was the Foxton Novices Cup final contested by relatively new bowlers Russ Turner and John Plummer
Russ took early control of this game and when sitting with an 18-14 lead he looked destined to lift the trophy
However John dug in to grind out 5 winning ends in a row and take the cup with a 21-18 victory
The last final of the day was the Maltby Ladies Cup
Top Borough bowler Jo Gates was defending the trophy she had won 12 times previously
Up against her for the first time was new lady bowler Janet Anderson who had fought her way to the final
Jo was not going to give up her crown easily and despite a valiant performance from Janet, Jo took the trophy home again for the 13th time with a great 21-4 victory
