BRITISH CROWN GREEN BOWLING ASSOCIATION
BOB HARRIGAN, RIP
It is with great sadness that I advise of the passing of Bob Harrigan, who was just a month short of his 88th birthday. He passed away at the beginning of November.
Bob was BCGBA President in 2002 and a valuable member of the Management Committee for many years. He was also President of North Midlands CCGBA for thirty-five years and held the position of Chairman and Secretary of Dunlop BC.
The British Crown Green Bowling Association extends our sincere condolences to Bob’s family and the many bowling friends he has made over the years at this difficult time.

PHIL BROWN, RIP
It is with great sadness that Phil Brown, a former President of the association, passed away earlier in the week.
Phil was President in 2017 and his highlight of his presidential year was the success of his colleagues from his beloved North Midlands county. He was proud to present Darren Plenderleith with the Senior Merit Trophy and his county side with the Crosfield cup after their victory over Potteries & District.
Phil was a valuable member of the BCGBA Management Committee for many years and his input will be missed.
The BCGBA extends our sincere condolences at this difficult time to Phil’s wife, Kate, his family and the many bowling friends he has made over the years.
