The Glaister Cup started around 1970 by the third president Thomas Glaister and his sister Miss Margaret Glaister who served under President Alfred Glaister on the inaugural Bolton BC committee. Thomas Glaister was a Conservative Mayor of Bolton from 1949-1950.The Glaisters were one of Bolton's most prosperous and prominent families.Thomas's father George  appears on the 1911 Census as an assistant bleacher, probably in his father’s firm, living with most of the family, a housekeeper and five servants at Breightmet Hall, Bolton. Thomas (1886-1974) lived at Quarlton Farm, Turton.

The Tyldesley Trophy started in 2012 after a bequest from a member Gwendoline Tyldesley of a substantial sum of £2000+ to Bolton BC. The decision at that time was to use the money for a Trophy and to start a competition for players of mid-ability. Gwendoline is believed to have lived at Blackrod House, Chorley Road, Bolton.

The annual Tyldesley Trophy (NGS Jack and below) will be held Face To Face at the Club. The Tyldesley Trophy is on Wednesday 20 October at 7:30pm.
