LEAGUE CHAMPIONS 2001/2
Widmer End Short Mat Bowls Club was formed in 1997 by several members of Holmer Green SMBC leaving to form their own club.
Around the same time Widmer End village hall became available for use as a venue, so those like-minded bowlers, about thirty, formed WESMBC. The inaugural meeting was held on 20/8/1997, and of the original 32 members, 23 are still with us out of our current membership of 44.
The committee is virtually the same now as at the inaugural meeting, with Terry Darvill the Chairman, Hubert Cox the Vice-Chairman, Lilian Lovegrove the Secretary, Dave Plater the Treasurer, and Ian McLeod Fixture Secretary, with two of these also holding office on the South Bucks League committee.
The Club is split into two teams of equal standing, and both play in the South Bucks SMB League and the Single Mat League.
The "B" Team
For most of the ĎBí teamís existence Hubert Cox captained the S Bucks team , with Terry Darvill captaining the Single Mat team.
