Excellent progress by young bowler

BOWLS: Dean Rudling has reached the National Schools of Excellence final to be held in Worthing, West Sussex in August.

He will be bowling against some of the top 16 bowlers at under-14 level in the country.

This is a great achievement as this is only his second full season of playing bowls and only his first season bowling in the junior tournaments.

To reach Worthing, Dean has already won the Norfolk School of Excellence and came third in the East Anglia Region on points, having narrowly lost in the final.

He has won several trophies this year in other events, bowling with Brooklyn and Mathius Cheal for Norfolk Bowls Club and single events bowling for Dereham.

Dean bowls his club bowls at Dereham Indoor Bowls Club with members of his family in the internal leagues. Last season he bowled for Dereham Men's B team on Saturdays.

Dean thanked all at the Dereham club who have given him support.
