FORMER menswear outfitter John Bowness has stepped into the blazer of Selby Golf Club captain.

The 20-handicap player has taken over the captaincy of the club from John Huddlestone.

Retired from mensweer, Bowness has been a member of the Selby club for 30 years.

He lives in Stillingfleet and his wife Maureen is also a member of the Mill Lane-based club.

A former captain of the Selby club’s rabbits section, Bowness has chosen the Selby War Memorial Hospital as his charity for which to raise funds this year.
