Big names at Brockholes for Charity KO

Club News


The draw and start times for this year's Weston Park Trophy have now been published and the full day of competition is this Sunday (14 September) at Brockholes BC starting from 9.00am. This annual competition is, as always, being run to raise funds for the West Park Cancer Charity, a most worthwhile cause and one very important and close to the competition organisers.


This year's competition has been successful in attracting some of the biggest names in bowling from Huddersfield, Yorkshire and beyond. Reigning champion Mark Regan will be looking to retain his title to go nicely with the British Veterans Merit title he claimed only 2 days ago.

Three former winners in the form of Josh Brown, Wayne Moseley and Jack Chesswas will be looking to get their name on the trophy once more, with the latter only having played 1 competitive game of bowls in the last 5 years.

Pudsey Classic winner Gareth "HSGC" Coates will be hoping for another trip to the bank after Sunday if he is able to add the Weston Park to his already ridiculous list of honours this season.

Stephen Walker, winner of both the Ossett & Horbury handicap and the Harrogate Merit, and current Marsh United Open champion Gary Siswick are among the others in the line up hoping to take home Sunday's title. Not to mention YouTube bowls sensation Andy Cairns making his debut in the competition.
