David Coller

We have learned with sadness that David Coller has passed away after suffering from ill health for some time.

He was a member of Staines for many years though he and his wife Christine had been at Chertsey Bowls for the last few years.
He also played at Egham during the winter season and this year in particular was on devastating form until the season was cut short by Covid19.

David was very well-liked and respected by those who knew him and will be sorely missed. Our thoughts go out to Christine at this sad time.

Nick Masters

We are sorry to have to report that Nick Masters has passed away after a long battle against cancer.


John Hay, President and Club Captain, writes:


On the passing of Nick Masters.

Nick joined the club in 2003 and almost immediately was involved in all the club’s activities. He played lots of games for the club, joined the Monday league, played in all the competitions in the club and went on to compete in the Middlesex competitions. He proved to be a very good bowler and an asset to the club. He introduced his son David and daughter Emma to the club, and they both joined in all the club’s activities also. The whole family were a great asset to the club. David won the championship in 2007 and Nick won it the following year. Nick was Vice Captain from 2007 to 2011. Unfortunately for the club, he moved to Godalming with Annette and we lost the assets of all three of the Masters. Nick kept in touch with the club, and the Masters came and played in my President’s Day and Nick gave a splendid speech afterwards.



Everyone who knew Nick will have great memories of him and his two children.


Our sympathies go to Annette, Emma and David at this very sad time.

Gordon Simpson

We report with great sorrow that Gordon has passed away after a long battle against cancer.
He was a member of our club for many years and really enjoyed his bowling although he was unable to bowl for the last few years due to his illness.
Our thoughts are with Dorothy and his family at this sad time.
