Slipping one rung on the rankings with the season end adjustment John was disappointed with last years season. He is looking to regain some points this season and hopes that he will be able to put in a better performance.

As one of the all time greats in the sport John has the same difficulties as a lot of players who also have to hold down full time jobs
as well as participating in the sport for his Country as well.

A founder member of both the Professional Bowls Association and the World Bowls Tour he is still a timeless ‘Ace’ in the sport and is certainly not a ‘pushover’ for any opponent.
