It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of Eddie Bell.
Eddie was a member at Bowdon from 1978 to 2012. He played a leading role in the renaissance of the club in late 70’s and early 80’s by providing coaching to new players as the club expanded its membership. He achieved a handicap of -1 and was selected to play in the Chairman’s Salver.
He was a Championship Referee and Examining Referee.
In 1978 he won the Handicap Doubles with Mrs. E Morton and the following year won the club Open (A) Class Singles.
In 1986 he played in the World Championship at Hurlingham and the same year won the Northern week Open Doubles with Mrs. Pat Hague.
The funeral is to be held at Charnock Richard Crematorium at 2.30 on Wednesday 28 August.
