Selwyn Goldsmith presented with lifetime achievement award

County chairman Selwyn Goldsmith was presented with the president's lifetime achievement award by president Brian Saunders and vice president Bob Oatway on Sunday at the associations AGM held at Wymondham community centre. Selwyn who first took the chairmans posistion back in 1996/97 has worked tirelessly since then in making the association run smooth and putting the sports interests first in Norfolk by visiting clubs and organising events whether it be by fundraising or just trying to get more people to uptake the sport. Selwyn has also been press officer since 1992/93 and continually works hard to put articles in the Eastern Daily Press every week. Current years have seen more press coverage for short mat bowls and with social media and the associations new website giving people more notice of what is going on in the sport on a daily basis and this is mainly due to the hard work Selwyn has put in and how quickly he delivers it. Since 2012/13 Selwyn has also been manager of the county team and with his leadership led Norfolk to their first ICC premier title in twenty years beating Essex in the final in 2015/16. It's fair to say Selwyn is one of the sports biggest advocates and his hard work and commitment over the years has definantly showed that and is every bit deserving of this award.
