80 Anniversary Match v Select Surrey County Team

On sunny day on Sunday the 7th August 2016 an Old Coulsdon Bowls Club team took the green to compete with a select Surrey County Side to celebrate OCBC's 80th Anniversary.

Included in the Surrey side were county president Graham Dawber, senior vice president and county secretary Derek Harvey, junior vice president Roger Lanham and honorary match secretary Bill Ayling. OCBC’s selection included a cross section of the club’s playing experience. Prior to the game photographs were taken in front of the pavilion. Prints should be available to those interested.

The 6 rink game which was lost to Surrey by 142 to 105 shots was followed by an excellent dinner and speeches from the Surrey county president, OCBC’s president John Harwood and men’s captain John Bradford. The whole affair was beautifully controlled by Bob Lovell, a fully qualified red coat attired master of ceremonies, and Aga Hassan.
