A brief history of the League
The league was formed in 1936 when representatives from Guisborough, Nunthorpe, Redcar Borough Park, Redcar Zetland Park and Saltburn met in the Bowling Pavilion at Saltburn on Monday 6th April.
Mr. Albert Million of Borough Park was elected Chairman, and Mr. Fred Longstaff of Saltburn was elected Secretary, of this meeting of Clubs interested in a Bowls League using the rules of the English Bowling Association.
The Chairman proposed a motion :-
This motion was carried.
The following Officers were appointed:
President: Mr Albert Million (Borough Park)
Vice President: Mr Herbert Frankland (Nunthorpe)
Treasurer: Mr Marwood Smith (Saltburn)
Secretary: Mr. Fred Longstaff (Saltburn)
These officers, along with 2 members of each Club in the League were to form a league committee.
League matches were to start on the week commencing 9 May.
Saltburn B.C. was chosen as the League H.Q.
Sadly Zetland Park has gone, but the League goes on.
Thanks A. Million!
