It was the ‘icing on the cake’ for Madi King of Congresbury Bowling Club who was highly delighted when she was presented with ‘Under 18 Player of the Year Award’ by Somerset Bowls Association. This followed a year in which Madi, aged 14 years, was a finalist in the County Under 25 ladies singles competition and, together with Katy Taylor, aged 14, were finalists in the U.25 ladies pairs.

Both girls were members of Somerset’s Under 31 Ladies team who bowled their way to become the 2021 National winners of the ‘Amy Rose’ championship. In addition, Madi became one of the youngest girls to play for Somerset County in the ‘Johns Trophy’ team. As part of Congresbury BC’s Juniors Team, who are sponsored by Debbie Fortune Estate Agents, Madi & Katy’s success will no doubt inspire the other members to continue to improve.
