Alvechurch resident Greg Smith is at the top of his game after winning three crown green bowls titles in five days.

The 22-year-old claimed the sport’s biggest title, The Waterloo Handicap, in a close final shown live on ITV4 – becoming the joint-youngest winner of the historic Blackpool tournament.

A day later he won the Talbot Cup at Raikes Hall, becoming the first person to win it twice since 1924, followed by the Midlands Masters in Nuneaton.

Greg, who bowls for Worcester and Warwickshire County and West Brom Supporters Club, started bowling at the age of five and is a former Junior All England Champion.
