Malvern Hills IBC are very pleased to announce that one of our members, Steve Boughton, has recently been elected as EIBA Junior Vice President. After all the present difficulties this is wonderful news and a great honour for Malvern Hills Indoor Bowls Club.
Steve has been bowling for about 38 years, having been introduced to the game by his father; firstly playing for Hampshire and then Worcestershire. He has been Worcestershire County IBA President three times, in 1997/98, 2004/5 and 2014/15; was made an Honorary Life Member of Worcestershire County IBA and has been its Treasurer since 2016.
Last season Steve started playing in the EIBA President’s team and was approached about standing for the Vice Presidency. Steve says that he has always believed in putting something back into any activity which has given him so much fun and enjoyment – so, after considerable thought and the backing of his peers, Steve decided to “give it a go” – and, as he says, the rest is history!
Many congratulations to Steve from all the bowlers at Malvern Hills and we wish him a very successful time in his new role.
