E-Mail : Western Morning News to Bowls Devon 

I’m excited about a new and added challenge in the world of Devon Bowls (indoor and outdoor) that is to write a weekly bowls column (with photos) in the Western Morning News.

  The day it appears has yet to be decided but it is my intention to provide the best coverage I can relating to the county as a whole.  Exeter / East and Mid-Devon, in particular, has been starved of decent coverage since a recession led decision (2011) by the Express & Echo to stop my weekly page of bowls.

  Over the last seven months a weekly (Wed) bowls page has gone down well and been well received by readers’ of the Plymouth Evening Herald and I hope to achieve a similar response through my work with the Western Morning News.

 Of course I can’t do any of this without the excellent support of Regional Sports Editor Andy Phillips (WMN & Plymouth Herald) and the respective sports desks’ or the continued support – always appreciated –  from you. Please, do, inundate me with anything you think may be of interest.

  With thanks and kindest regards
