Laws bowls stars of the future
TWENTY-five talented lawn bowlers aged 12-18 years have just been selected into the North Coast Academy of Sport 2005-06 Lawn Bowling Program.
Now in its fifth year, the program, which is sponsored by Park Beach Bowling Club, services the Zone One and Zone 14 bowling areas, which together span a region from Tweed Heads to Camden Haven.
The selected Zone One bowlers and their supporting clubs include Sam Foran Alstonville, Aryden Stewart-Butcher Brooms Head, Scott Lumsden - Brunswick Heads, Jye Ramsay and Daniel Searle Grafton, Beau Beddoes - Lismore RSL, Matthew Jones and Joe Scofield - Lismore Workers Heights, Sam Smart Mullumbimby, Catherine ONeill - South Lismore, Brandon Cole - South Grafton, Jamie Eichorn and Nicholas Parlevliet - Yamba.
Program staff remain unchanged from last year with Alisdair Watts (Lismore Heights), Ron Roberts (Coffs Harbour) and Don Kelly (Kempsey) maintaining their sub-regional coaching roles, while Ken Watts, who has been the driving force in establishing and building the program, continuing as manager.
The squad will come together at Park Beach Bowling Club in August and February for a combined training day and sponsors' function.
