Bowls NSW and the wider Bowls Community were saddened to hear of the passing of Hall of Famer Robert (Bob) Fishlock on 17th March 2018.
Bowls NSW Cap #803 – 104 Tests
Newcastle Zone 2 Representative on 181 Occasions
Former NSW State Selector
Former NSW State Coach
Regarded by many (world-wide) as the most competent technical coach of them all.
Bob Fishlock’s main forte was the ability to get the best out of all bowlers, particularly younger ones; in fact he wrote a dossier on Pennant play, including a great inclusion on defence. Hamilton, Windale-Gateshead and Lambton Clubs all learned from Bob’s tutelage.
Bob Fishlock travelled all over NSW setting up coaching clinics for interested bowlers; all at minor recompense.
He telephonically coached some of the best bowlers overseas, interstate as well as locally. One discussion or lesson put many back on track.
Our sympathies to Joy, Brett and families.
Vale Bob Fishlock
