A member of Ross-on-Wye Bowling Club has created history this week, by becoming the first player in the county to win every county title.

Rob Gwilliam, 37, won both the Men’s Four Wood Pairs and the Men’s County Rinks this year, meaning he has now won every county honour in his career.

The bowler won his first competition in 1994 and has won six more county championships since then, and all five club titles.

Rob told the Ross Gazette: “To win everything is just mad, I always wanted to have a sport that I am good at and now I’ve found it.”

Rob picked up the sport at just 14 and did so by complete chance. He said: “I missed the bus to school when I was 14, I couldn’t stay at home on my own, so I went up and watched my nan play and got involved myself.”
