Thanks to all of you who voted for Somerset’s Junior International Sam Steel (Watchet BC), our candidate for the Bowls England Young Bowler of the Year. The country-wide vote chose Northamptonshire’s Kieran Rollings as the eventual winner, but many congratulations to Sam for being nominated as a result of his outstanding season’s bowling. Also close to home, Louis Ridout (ex-Somerset, now Devon) was voted Bowls England Mens Bowler of the Year.
