Gordon Allan entered
journalism straight from school in Aberdeen in 1951. After seven
years on the local newspapers, interrupted by National Service
in the RASC, he spent thirty years in Fleet Street, mainly as
a sports sub-editor and reporter with The Times. He
lives in Carshalton, Surrey.
Temporarily out of stock.
There are open or seaside
bowls tournaments going on somewhere almost every week of the summer
and in this book Gordon Allan
describes his journey round fifteen of them, from Broadstairs in
the east to Teignmouth in the west. He conveys by thumbnail
the flavour of each place – its background, history and traditions.
The author touches on the perennial difficulty of finding
markers, remembers happy days bowling in Sussex and Devon, and ends
the book by detailing the principal English bowls tournaments.
