Grantham Bowl can now claim to have Lincolnshire Junior County Champions in its ranks.
Fourteen-year-old Bailey Hibbitt took part in the Lincs Junior Championships at Lincoln along with seven clubmates last weekend. He contested the under-14 team event with Sam Lee, Emily Posy and young England starlet Katie Tagg, and ran away with the event to bring home gold by more than 100 pins.
A personal best series score of 567, along with his singles and doubles scores, was enough to make Bailey county champ.
There was also gold in the under-18 doubles for the brother and sister Connor and Blair Jackson, while Josh Davies and Thomas Pierrepoint finished third in the under-16 doubles.
