What Other Clubs Have You Played For?
Garden Village , Cherry Grove, 
What Is Your Most Memorable Game ?
A game that sticks in my mind is when I beat Bobby Richards at Rhos 21-20. I was 20-16 down and ran out.      
I was playing for Garden Village at the time the green was running and it was a great game.
What Is Your Claim To Fame In Bowls?
 I was the youngest ever winner of the Burton Cup in 1984 when I beat Rocky Jones of Esclusham 21-10 in the final at Gresford Village. 
In those days the competition was very well supported.
What Is Your Claim To Fame Any?
 Not sure!!
Who Is The Best Player You Have Played?
 Very difficult question. There are some top bowlers in the Wrexham League but for sheer consistency George Jones (Esclusham) 
20 years ago he took some beating. He could play any length and was a gentleman to play.  
What Is The Best Green You Have Played On?
 Parciau when it is running.  
What Greens Do You Like Playing On?
 Parciau, Rhos. 
Do You Like Playing On A Heavy Green?
 I would not say I like it but just get your arm back!
How Long Have You Been Playing Bowls?
25 years
What Is Your Best Moment In Bowls?
 Making my debut for Wales in 1984 against South Yorkshire at Brymbo. It was pouring down with rain 
 but after a bad start I won 21-17.
Do You Like Playing On A Running Green?
 Yes, but just as we get used to a fast green the hosepipe comes out!
What Is Your Favourite Football Team?
 I have been a Wrexham FC season ticket holder for many years. 
 Leeds United are my second team. 
Do You Have Any Great Ambitions In Bowls?
 To win the Welsh Senior Merit and to see the Cunliffe A team win a Cup competition and to improve on our 3rd 
 place finish last season.
