|The Clubs History:|
The Club was formed in 1968 at the behest of Bromsgrove Council to make full use of the newly opened bowling green in Sanders Park. A meeting was arranged by several bowlers and at the end of that night Bromsgrove Town B.C. was up and running.
Most of the original founder members of the Club are no longer with us, among them being Herbert Powell, Frank Harding, Bob Churms and the man who became Mr Bromsgrove, Neville Cox, who during his years with the Club and up until his passing, occupied almost every position in it.
County Honours did not come easily to Bromsgrove bowlers, with Trevor Albutt finishing runner-up in both the under 25s and Champion of Champions in 1982, and not until Ron Cotton won the Champion of Champions in 1991 did success start to arrive, in 1996 the Club providing runners-up in the County Triples and finally the Club provided Four Winners in 1998, having said this, Bromsgrove bowlers have won the Veterans Pairs on five occasions and runners-up once. (improvement comes with age).
Notable and long serving County players at Middleton Cup level were Reg Wallace and Ian Crowe, (Ian went on to serve as County Competitive Team Manager). Bromsgrove Town, now like many other Clubs see a downturn in membership and interest in the game. We hope that our new venture in building and funding our own pavilion may alter this and help us to provide better facilities for entertaining visiting clubs to our green.
We believe the position within Sanders Park makes our green amongst the best locations in the County and together with our Council we aim to have a green to be numbered amongst the best in the County.
