What an honour and privilege it is to be Northants Bowling Federation President until November 2020.

Following my predecessor will be a hard task but I am here to ensure our high standards in all matters continue.

I am fortunate to have a solid committee who work hard to ensure the smooth running of the county federation and I am hopeful we will achieve even more success in national competitions.

I look forward to meeting as many bowlers as possible during my two years as your President.

First of all my thanks to Jessica Phillips for all her hard work as President over the last 12 months and as deputy President before that.

I would also like to thank my fellow members of Ketton Bowls Club for supporting my nomination.

Northants Ladies have come a long way over the years and are now up there with the best with more doing well at the Finals at Newark and Skegness.

I am honoured and delighted to be President, will encourage more bowlers to join the Federation and will try to do as good a job as the previous Presidents.

I hope you all have an enjoyable and successful bowling year.

Chris Ford
