Sad news from Telegraph Bowling Club: Peter Day

It is with great sadness that I have to report that Peter Day, the long time Secretary of Telegraph Bowling Club, passed away in Arrowe Park yesterday after a long fight against cancer. Peter and his wife Brenda were always on hand to help out the Association whenever we had competitions at Central Park and all our sympathies go to Brenda and Peter's extended family members at this very sad time. Funeral details will be posted on this site as soon as we have further information.

Wallasey CGBA Cup Finals, Dress Code problem again.

Even after repeated warnings about the dress code to be worn for our Team Cup Finals, a male bowler from Hoylake Central & Melrose managed to play in the Harold Jones Cup Final last Saturday in the wrong coloured trousers. The fact that his match had been in progress for a few ends before the colour of his trousers was brought to the attention of the two officials in the scoring hut meant that he was allowed to continue his match. There was confusion as to who was responsible for making sure everyone is wearing the correct clothing and we have now decided that our Association Vice Chairman, Colin Jones, will liaise with the two team Captains15 minutes before the start of every Final to check both teams are wearing the correct attire in the correct colour. There was talk around the green last Saturday that Manor Road 'B' could have claimed the game in which the offending player was playing but this was not the case as the player should have been replaced by another correctly attired player instead. If a player does not adhere to the dress code he or she will not be allowed to play in the match and a suitably attired reserve must take their place. Once again the correct rulings are posted below. Hopefully this will now see an end to an incident that did happen but should not have been allowed to happen and in future there should not be any need for this sort of repeat issuing of competion rules.

Our Constitutional Laws in the table at the left of this page have been updated with the following rules.

11   In all Cup Finals, the B.C.G.B.A. Dress Code shall apply.

Male bowlers should follow the rules below.

Trousers: These shall be full length, Black single coloured trousers. Studs, rivets and zipped pockets are not allowed. Shell suits, Track suits or denims are not allowed nor are cargo pants.

Shirts: These shall be collared shirts only.


Female Bowlers should follow the rules below.

Trousers, tailored shorts, tailored cropped trousers or skirts, these shall be at least knee length and single coloured either Black or Navy.

Shirts: These shall be single coloured with sleeves and collar.

It is the responsibility of the Association Secretary to inform competing Clubs that Dress Code will be required in Finals and if any player does not observe the rule, he or she will not be permitted to play in the said Final and a suitably attired substitute will replace the offending bowler.

Nothing in the above rule shall prevent exceptions being made for Individuals with a relevant disability.

No inappropriate use of weather protection clothing is permitted.

Wallasey CGBA Individual Merit

This competition was originally scheduled for Sunday June 18th but has now been postponed until later in the year because of a clash with the Isle of Man week competition. Historically over recent years many of the competitors who enter our Premier Merit competition also travel to compete in the Isle of Man Festival. We apologise for this late postponement and will post a new date for the Wallasey Individual Merit as and when we have managed to find a suitable date.
