AS THE start of the outdoor bowling season approaches, we look back 22 years to an historic season for Abbey Bowling Club.
In 1989 at the town championships held at Newgate Bowling club, Abbey secured all four titles. It is believed that this is the only time that this has been achieved (but I am sure our readers will let us know if that is not the case).
Pictured with their trophies are, from left, back - Jim Valentine, Alan Jamieson and Colin McKay, triples winners; Jim Cargill, singles; and Mike Cossans and Ian Pearson, pairs.
Front - fours winners Willie Mitchell, Bryant Masson, Joe Gibson and Joe Gordon.
