Keith Sowerbutts 1947 – 2020
It is with much sadness that we report that Keith passed away on 12 July following a number of years of failing health.
His bridge playing career spanned over 50 years playing his first knockout competition in 1969, following this he represented the county on many occasions including the 1995 Tollemache team. He was known for his unconventional but highly effective style of bidding and playing and whilst his partners may say he was not always easy to play with he was a much more difficult and formidable opponent at the bridge table.
Deepest sympathy is extended to his family, friends, bridge partners and the wider bridge community.
