AS a result of the recent World Bowls elections, the Board of Directors now has a new face in its composition.

Wayne Moffatt of Australia replaces retiring Karen Murphy, the reigning world women’s singles champion, as Regional Director for Asia and Oceania. He defeated the only other candidate, former Bowls New Zealand chief executive Kerry Clark CNZM OBE in the election.

Guernsey’s Garry Collins was returned as Regional Director for Europe (including British Isles) when he defeated candidate Zvika Hadar of Israel.

South Africa’s John McArdle was re-elected unopposed as Regional Director for Africa and The Americas.

These appointments will be ratified at the April 14 World Bowls Council meeting.
