Club backs Luke to go all the way

WITH the backing of his local club, Luke Jones is expected to go far as a bowler.

The 15-year-old Evans River student was recently presented with a bursary of $4000 to cover the costs of his bowls training and events for the next year.

"Luke has been given the money as a bursary from the three organisations within the club, the men's bowls, the ladies bowls and the Evans Head Bowling Club itself," Evans Head Bowling Club chief Roger Hong said.

"We did it because of the amount of talent he's showing on the bowling green."

Mr Hong is confident Luke will eventually play for Australia in his chosen sport.

"His grandfather, Kevin, was covering all his costs, which meant driving him down to Sydney to attend training and events," he said.

"We decided to ease the burden for them with the bursary."
