Remembering Colin Presland

Former Great Britain International Colin sadly passed away Thursday morning, 18th June. From the ‘golden era’ he was one of the best bowlers in the country in the early 70’s.

Colin earned his spot for Great Britain with some fantastic performances picking up a Booths Gin Singles title and a win in Harrow then played the European Cup taking a team Silver with Jon Reeves, Bernie Caterer, Dave Pond, Geoff Liddiard, and Bobby Mansfield. He later won three PTBC’s in the late 70’s and early 80’s and a win also in Europe in the Netherlands in Trios.
