What Is Your Most Memorable Game ?
Against Malcolm Hughes from Brymbo, when I was about 17 and he at the time was regarded as one of, if not 
the best player in the area, I won 21-20 with neither of us having a wood more than a few inches away throughout.
What is your Biggest Regret In Bowls?
Following on From the above I was selected as a reserve  for the County team (at that time it was a great honour to be selected)
But on the Sunday it was pouring with rain, and my Dad said the game would be off, so I didn't go. On the Monday 
Ernie Smith (from Brymbo) who was on the selection committee came to Garden Village and wiped the floor  with me, and told me 
I would have played, if I had turned up !!
What Is Your Claim To Fame In Bowls?
Lost 21-0 at Denbigh a few years ago on the Tuesday night and won the Miners Open the following Sunday !!!
<< Also lost in the Quarter-Final of the Welsh Merit against Mervyn Jones was 19-11 down came back to 19 across and lying 2 good uns for 
game Mervyn was steaming (not striking and off land) with his last bowl but  nicked his short wood and rested on the jack, he won the last
end, and the Merit that year, you have to have that bit of luck to win a Competition !! >>
Who Is The Best Player You Have Played?
Played a lot of good players over the years, but George Jones
