John Straughan Trophy
This trophy was presented to the Cockton Hill BC by John Straughan to be played for by teams representing the Ladies and Veterans of that Club. After a few years the competition fell by the wayside but in 2012 it was suggested that this trophy be the prize in a competition played between Cockton Hill and Wolsingham bowling clubs as John Straughan had been an original member of Wolsingham BC. He and his son, also called John, played for Wolsingham teams on many occasions. On retirement John moved from his farm down into Orchard Close, Wolsingham but then played most of his bowling at his son’s local club, Cockton Hill.
