BOWLERS from Group Seven took on an East Ham & District BA select side at Barking Borough Bowling Club, Barking Park, last week for the Arthur Wilson Trophy.

This is the fifth time the trophy has been competed for, in memory of the popular bowler who passed away in December, 2004, and was held on the eve of what would have been his 76th birthday.

Wilson's widow, Kath, and sons Mark, Paul and Barry are all keen bowlers, and took part in the match. Essex County Bowling President Keith Riley also took part, indicating the esteem in which the former Fleet Street press photographer was held.

For the record, Group Seven won the match by 115 shots to 110 shots.
