Sunday 31st January 2016 21.45p.m.
Quite a memorable moment for me as this was when the Gala Dinner
finished at the Best Oasis Hotel Mojacar marking the end of the
annual game between the Spanish International Squad and the
Malaga Select and the exact moment that I finally resigned from
all functions relating to the International Team.
I seemed to have
been involved with the squad for an eternity, in fact the day
after I passed my trial I received a telegram of congratulations
from General Franco. Over the many years I have met some great
friends from all over the world, through being involved with the
squad and will cherish their friendship forever.
I would like to
thank all present and past players and officials for my
wonderful time in the squad I have enjoyed it immensely,
allowing me to travel and play bowls in some wonderful places.
All that remains
for me to say is good luck to Graham Cathcart and the rest of
the squad in all further International matches.
I am sure
the Spanish Squad and indeed the whole of the Spanish Lawn
Bowling Community would like to thank Jackie for all the
effort he has put in over the years & wish him the best of
Jackie, you're a giant!
