History of Belton Woods Seniors (under permanent reconstruction)
The Seniors were founded on 17 June 1992 as a result of a request from Brian Gibson and Roger Cochrane, the then hotel owner, the Belton Woods Seniors section began with 7 foundation members: Dick Boycott, Jim Evans, Brian Gibson, Ray Hesling, Tom Lambert, Peter Prior & Dan Ward. By the end of that year there were 30 of us.
As the seniors progressed, a captain and committee were appointed. Peter Prior was the Seniors’ liaison representative on the main club committee.
The Seniors first match was on 12 August 1992 against Retford - The Seniors boasted 17 members at that time.
For those of us that are misty-eyed about the past this page is a repository for old photos and other items relating to the BW Seniors. Enjoy!
By their very nature some of these items are of poor quality but it’s all we’ve got! If any of the BWS have any old photos etc then please let us all see them. Click Here to enter the Museum then click “Web Albums” to see all photos.
Just a taster to savour
