It has been a memorable year for Mick Rayson.

The Sawtry man has enjoyed every minute of his reign as English Bowling Federation president.

Rayson has certainly clocked up the miles while attending matches featuring all 13 member counties.

He also officiated at the EBF indoor and outdoor finals at Newark and Skegness respectively and required a good appetite while attending many county dinners.

"I've thoroughly enjoyed my time as national president," said Rayson. "I would certainly do it again next year if I could!
