Our Chairman has informed me that Alan Ward, who was a long time member at Tollerton SMBA passed away last Friday (22 January). It is understood that he had been ill for some time. Alan was a big personality on the Yorkshire bowls scene and always supported the county and other competitions whenever he could. He was also the grandad of Matthew Jackson, one of the counties top young bowlers who he encouraged and supported during the days when Matthew was finding his feet.
Our sympathies go to Margaret and all his family at this time as they come to terms with their sad loss.
