Clarence receive prestigious trophy

Clarence Bowling Club members picked up the runners-up trophy in the Bowls England Club of the Year competition.

WESTON’S Clarence Bowling Club received a big ovation at the Bowls England annual dinner in Leicester recently.

The applause came as club president Reg Flicker went up to receive a handsome trophy on behalf of Clarence for being runners-up in the Bowls England Club of the Year competition.

Flicker and his wife Anita were accompanied by club youth coach David Stott and his wife Elaine at the dinner, which was held at the King Power Stadium, Leicester City’s ground.

Clarence’s involvement with youth, particularly their link with Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College, was one of the factors which earned them the Club of the Year runner-up accolade. It was the first time they had entered the competition, which is open to more than 2,400 bowling clubs.
