MEMORY LANE | Mark Walton, Yorkshire (2005)

27th November, 2020 by Matt Wordingham

The World Champion of Champions will take place this time next year, where Jamie-Lea Winch and Edward Morris will be going for gold on the greens of Naenae BC in New Zealand.

We have caught up with the three bowlers who have won the World Champion of Champions title and over the next few days will be sharing their stories. First up is Yorkshireโ€™s Mark Walton who became the first English success in 2005.
