BIBC AND BIWBC managers joined by team of assistants
Further to the announcement of the team managers and player-coach for the BIBC and BIWBC Internationals, a team of seven will provide assistance in the build-up to the competitions.
Men’s team managers Paul Foster MBE and David Peacock will have the knowledge and experience of Robert Grant, Scott Kennedy and Andy Meekison as they prepare for the senior BIBC Internationals, whilst David Ferguson will join the team to assist with the junior squad.
Robert and Scott are experienced international bowlers; and Andy and David have previously been involved in squad selection.
Ladies’ team manager Margaret Bingham and player-coach Margaret Letham will be assisted by Betty Forsyth, Fiona Kerr and Betty Aitken.
Betty Forsyth and Fiona have selected squads in the past, whilst Betty Aitken is a former team manager for the internationals and is a current BIWBC Championships manager.
