Jackie Breslin Retires from the International Team

END OF AN ERA

Feb 2016
 


Sunday 31st January 2016 21.45p.m. Quite a memorable moment for me as this was when the Gala Dinner finished at the Best Oasis Hotel Mojacar marking the end of the annual game between the Spanish International Squad and the Malaga Select and the exact moment that I finally resigned from all functions relating to the International Team.

I seemed to have been involved with the squad for an eternity, in fact the day after I passed my trial I received a telegram of congratulations from General Franco. Over the many years I have met some great friends from all over the world, through being involved with the squad and will cherish their friendship forever.

I would like to thank all present and past players and officials for my wonderful time in the squad I have enjoyed it immensely, allowing me to travel and play bowls in some wonderful places.

All that remains for me to say is good luck to Graham Cathcart and the rest of the squad in all further International matches.

Cheers, Jackie Breslin

Footnote: I am sure the Spanish Squad and indeed the whole of the Spanish Lawn Bowling Community would like to thank Jackie for all the effort he has put in over the years & wish him the best of luck.

Jackie, you're a giant!
