Farewell to John O'Donnell
Farewell to our club champion
It is with mixed feelings that the Lara Bowling Club says farewell to our club champion, John O'Donnell.
John is moving to the Melbourne metropolitan league to represent the Caufield bowling club.
John has represented the Lara Bowling Club for five seasons and in that time racked up many team and individual honours:
- Mens singles champion 2010 - 2011
- Mens singles champion 2011 - 2012
- Mens singles champion 2014 - 2015
In 2011-2012 John went on to win the GBR Mens Champion of Champions and in 2014-2015 was the runner up in the same event.
John was also the catalyst for when the LBC's Mens Division 1 side won the pennant final to earn a berth in the GBR Premier League, no small achievement for the club.
For those that have been at the club during John's time will tell you that he provided inspiration to his players and to the club as a whole. He brought a high standard of performance to Saturday pennant players, one of the best Saturday afternoon skips going around and his presence will be missed.
Everyone at the club wishes John and his family all the very best in his future endeavours, both on and off the bowling green.
