State: NSW

Country of Birth: Manchester, England
Club: St Johns Park NSW
Bowl Used: Dreamline XG & Fusion

 

Why do you use this bowl? In my opinion the Dreamline XG is currently the best bowl on the market for all round use right across Australia and often seems to handle the difficult windy conditions a lot better than my opponents bowls. The Fusion with a slightly narrower line is fantastic on quick running greens and many synthetics also.
How and when did you start bowling? My father was a crown green bowler and I won my first competition aged 12 years old. I first played flat green at a local indoor centre aged 18.
Career Goals I have always been tremendously competitive and ambitious in everything I do and would love to get a call up to play for my newly adopted country as a proud Australian.
Career Highlights 2002 was definitely the dream year of my career winning a World Title with my best mate Tony Allcock on the Indoor then adding the Commonwealth Games Gold medal in my home town of Manchester in front of friends and family will always be very special to me.

Who do you most admire? The most versatile and gifted player I have ever played with is Indoor & Outdoor World Champion Tony Allcock from England. In Australia Steve Glasson is the ultimate gentleman and I wish I had Ryan Bester's drive!
  I have had a ball playing with the guys at Cabramatta Bowling Club and I reckon it would be the most professional outfit in Australia at the moment.
What would you do if you weren't bowling? I’m not sure what I would do if I wasn’t bowling. It has been such a big part of my life for over 25 years. That said I really enjoy the odd game of golf even though I am really terrible at it.
