Bloxham BC Secretary Des Jones, reports the sad passing of member, Bob Ottway.

Bob Ottway was a member for only a few years but in that time committed himself to supporting the club in both playing and administration.  Shortly after joining Bob took on the role of Fixture secretary which he held from 2019 through to 2021. He played regularly for the club in both League and Friendly matches as well as a few County games until poor health forced him to resign from the club.  Bob was in hospital when he passed away last Saturday, 23 March 2024.

Des Jones has passed the following on, for information:
