Lancashire bowling gold medal awarded to William Steadman Poole 1916.
Rainhill, 1916
I have inherited this medal from my grandfather. At the time he won this medal he was living in Rainhill, probably on Church Place, Warrington Road. He was certainly living there in 1918 when my father was born.
It’s therefore possible that he was a member of Rainhill Bowling Club at that time. I’d be interested to hear from anyone who could add more information or verify his link to that club.
