Seamer’s Ben Render has celebrated his call-up to the England junior international flat green bowls team by winning a national competition.
The Yorkshire star, who plays for Nafferton BC, is delighted to have won the Bowls England National Two-Wood Singles Championship, sponsored by Collette Worldwide Holidays.
“I am overjoyed at my success, beating some tough opposition in the semi and final by beating two of my England under-25 teammates.”
