A COMPETITION was held by Rubery-based RSJC Bowling Club in memory of one of their members who lost his battle with bowel cancer.
The Graham Twist Memorial Trophy, won by Roy Philips, was created in memory of Graham who died on May 11 last year.
He had been a member of the RSJC since 1987 and still went along to support his team even when he was too ill to play.
His widow Sheila Twist, who presented the trophy to Mr Philips, said: “Graham so loved playing bowls and we could think of no greater tribute than to present a cup to the club he enjoyed playing for.”
The tournament was hotly contested by all of the club’s members who vied to be the first recipient.
Mr Philips said: “I’m absolutely over the moon to win the cup.
“Graham and I were great friends and it means such a lot to me to win it.”
