... that Year 8 student Matthew Harwood will be the Kent representative in the English National Under 18’s tournament for Short Mat Bowls this weekend. After a successful season where he has represented the county in both the B team and played a couple of games for the Premier team in the National competition, he has managed to qualify for both the National Under 18 singles competition, as well as the National Fours competition which he will compete in during the Easter break. We wish him all the very best!
