“When I moved from Scotland to England I was very fortunate to be given the opportunity of leading in the England team for the great David Bryant. To be selected for England was fantastic, but to be given the chance to play with the greatest bowler ever was a dream come true; I have played all over the world with David and you would not meet a nicer person both on and off the green. It’s a very sad day for bowls, he will be greatly missed.”
