Bagshaw Bowl - On Friday at the Club Captains Presentation evening the Bagshaw Bowl was presented by Club vice captain James Footitt to this years winner Gary Skerrit. This year the competition, seniors raised £500 for Prostate Cancer UK charity making a total of £7,105 since the trophy was donated in 2006. By coincidence when Gary was club captain his charity was for Prostate Cancer and he raised a similar £7,000 amount during his year.
