PROFILE (05/12/15)

Malcolm is the only player of the current membership to have represented Broomfield in it's first Warwick & Worcester season. He played in the very first fixture on Saturday 15th April 1978 at home to West Midlands Gas in Senior Division 11. The team won by 29 shots and Malcolm was the best card with a 21-8 win.

Over 40 years have passed since Malcolm's first association with the club. His service to Broomfield was interrupted by a 7 season hiatus (1999-2005) for family reasons. He returned in 2006 and is now one of our longest serving members. For more than 30 years his apperances in club championship finals earnt him the 'Jimmy White' tag with a runners up spot in 1983, 1988, 1991, 1993 and 2007. In 2015 the long awaited title of club champion was his with a 21-11 victory in the final against four-time winner Mark Hadley. In doing so Malcolm set a post-war record of 32 years between appearances in a club championship final.

Between 1977 and 1991 Malcolm served as secretary five times and as treasurer three times. He has won the W&W Alliance club averages seven times and was made a honorary life member of Broomfield Bowling Club in 2007 for his years of active service.
