When and why did you start playing bowls?

I started playing at the age of 8 following in my Dad, Grandad and Great Grandad’s footsteps.

Are there any particular stories/incidents you would like to tell us about that relate to your bowling?

In 2018 I had to play my brother twice in the Junior competitions in the final. Won one, lost one to the same score.

In the bowling world who do you most admire and why?

My Dad for getting me into the game and teaching me how to play. Also Callum Wraight as he is entertaining.

Do you have a favourite – film, book, song, football team, actor, etc. It can be more than one if you like.

My favourite football team is Derby County FC.
