Selection Expressions Of Interest for 2017-18 Seasons

Fellow Bowlers,

The Committee at its monthly meeting last night approved the following process for the selection of Selectors for season 2017/18. Accordingly, we are now calling for Expression of Interest (EOI) from those members wanting to be considered for these positions.

Saturday Pennant


Two Selectors (Sides 1 to 4)

Two Selectors (Sides 5 to 7)

All five selectors would be involved in the general discussion in the selection of all sides. But actually who will be involved in selection of each side is as follows:

  • The Chairperson and two Selectors (Sides 1 to 4) would be able to vote on the selection of the top four sides.
  • The Chairperson and two Selectors (Sides 5 to 7) would be able to vote on the selection of the lower three sides.

Midweek Pennant


Two Selectors

All three selectors would be involved in the discussion and the selection of the Midweek Pennant sides.

Tuesday Night Pennant

The Committee approved that the Bowls Director will be selector for this side.

If you are interested in putting an EOI for any of the Selectors vacancies, please have your EOI in to the Secretary via email by Friday 26 May 2017 and the email address is . Included in the EOI should be which Selector position you are interested in being considered for. Also, if you wanting to the Chairperson of Selectors for either Saturday or Midweek Pennant you should add that you want to be considered for these vacancies plus you should provide what your goals as Chairperson would be for the coming season.

The Committee at its next meeting on Tuesday 13 June 2017 will consider all EOIs received for the positions and then will make appropriate appointments to the Selector positions. We will then be in the position to announce our new Selection Panels to the members.

We are looking forward to receiving EOI from suitably interested members for these Selectors positions
