Look back over past finals and club champions from years gone by

 

Our records date back to 1912 when the Club Championship was competed for by the bowls section of Smethwick Cricket Club. In 1937 Alfred Neale passed away, he had been the main clubs President and had much involvement, especially with the cricket section. After his death three trophies were given to the club by the Neale family: The Neale Cricket Trophy, The Neale Tennis Trophy and The Neale Bowls Trophy which is pictured below. We then used this cup for the club championship for the following 59 years, referred to as 'The Alfred Neale Club Championship'. In 1996 the Roy Freeman Cup was merged with the championship to form the newly named 'Roy Freeman Club Championship'.

Neale Trophy (Bowls Section)

The Alfred Neale Trophy for the bowling section (pictured above) was used for the Club Championship between 1937 & 1996.

Walter Adams lifted the Alfred Neale trophy three years running between 1938 and 1940. However, in 1939 this was for winning the 'American Tournament' as the Club Championship was not commenced due to bad weather and the outbreak of War.
