It is with sadness to advise former county player Mr Richard Dougal passed away yesterday.

Richard played for the county over many years – and represented the county on 100 occasions, with nearly all of these in the Middleton and Muras cups. Richard was a member of the last Middleton Cup winning team for Northumberland in 1988 (photo below).

Richard was a long standing member of both Portland BC Ltd, and Gosforth BC.

Richard will be sorely missed, and our thoughts are very much with his family and many friends through the bowling community.

The funeral will take place at 2.30pm on 30th March at Blyth Crematorium and afterwards at Bayhorse, Cramlington.

RIP Richard.
