WHITE AND GOWSHALL CLAIM BOWLER OF THE YEAR AWARDS
Worcestershire’s Izzie White and Lincolnshire’s Amy Gowshall scooped the Bowls England Young Woman Bowler of the Year and Woman Bowler of the Year awards respectively at the Bowls England Women’s Annual Dinner and Presentation of Prizes in Solihull on Saturday (24th November).
In an exciting new format, a shortlist for each award was compiled, with a public vote then taking place to crown the respective winners.
16-year-old White triumphed in the Bowls International sponsored junior category, with Buckinghamshire’s Courtney Harvey as runner-up, beating off the competition of Emma Cooper (Sussex), Emily Ferguson (Kent), Katherine Rednall (Suffolk), Vicky Room (Buckinghamshire) and Rachel Tremlett (Hertfordshire).
The Chester Road BC bowler became the youngest person to win the Bowls England Women’s Junior Singles Championship this year. She has been a member of the Bowls England Youth Academy and represented her country at the U18 Test Match against Wales in September, which included an impressive 21-14 singles victory over Lauren Gowen, who won both the Welsh U18 and U25 Singles titles last year.
Harvey became just the second female to win the Sutton Winson Trophy at the 2018 Bowls England National Championships. The 18-year-old also reached the National Championships in both the Junior Singles and Junior Pairs, as well as representing Buckinghamshire in the Johns Trophy and Walker Cup.
Gowshall, from Cleethorpes BC, won the Taylor Bowls sponsored honour in recognition of her fine performances at the 2018 Bowls England National Championships, where she won the Two-Wood Singles and achieved a record-breaking ninth Champion of Champions title since 1998. She was also the runner-up in the National Singles, a semi-finalist in the Women’s Pairs and earned her 75th international cap during the successful Series in Ireland back in June.
Devon’s Sophie Tolchard from Kings BC was announced as the runner-up. Tolchard secured three national titles this year, which included winning the Women’s National Singles for the second time in four years. Tolchard joined teammates Kelly Atkinson, Lorraine Hackett and Natalie Chestney to win the Women’s Fours Championship and then followed this up with victory in the Women’s Top Club – Kings’ first success in this event since 2009.
Also shortlisted for the award was Caroline Campion (Oxfordshire), Margaret Holden (Hampshire), Sian Honnor (Kent), Debbie Seward (Surrey), Margaret Smith (Surrey) and Terrie Wombell (Nottinghamshire)
The winners and runners-up received their gifts and awards from Sian Honnor, Editor of Bowls International.
