Liverpool manager is a bowls fan

There are many reasons for Liverpool supporters to be hopeful for this season. A new manager, new players and more importantly a new atmosphere at the club.

Crown green bowling Liverpool fans will have been delighted to see that the man responsible is also a dab hand at bowls as well. Jurgen Klopp has impressed everyone with ‘down to earth’ approach to life and he, and his family, have settled well into the local community.

Today, an article appeared on the Liverpool Football Club website showing Jurgen visiting a local bowls club (LFC article) in Formby. The Holy Trinity Club welcomed the Liverpool manager and during the game they had time to enjoy a chat about Liverpool, football and how Jurgen and his family have settled into life on Merseyside.

Throughout his bowling career Steve has always supported the admin side of the game. As a club secretary, association secretary, county delegate on the BCGBA (National Governing Body) Management Committee, Merseyside champion in 2002 and Merseyside County President (2014-15) Steve has always been keen to promote the game especially through the broadcast of the game on TV or Internet. Steve set up the LIVE BOWLS YouTube channel and, through the LDBA, runs national competitions. Seeing an avenue to report and promote the game Steve set up the Bowls Observer on-line magazine after consulting with respected figures in the game and journalism.
