Barnsley College student Chelsea Smith has caused a stir and won silverware after discovering a passion for ten-pin bowling.

Chelsea, who is studying Level 1 Childcare, has helped Barnsley Youth Bowling Club (BYBC) claim two trophies since taking up the sport.

The 16-year-old, of Redhill Court, Redbrook, was part of the successful BYBC team which triumphed in a challenge match against Manchester Youth Bowling Club and also claimed The Margarets Trophy after coming in first place in a competition among BYBC players.

Chelsea said: “I have been playing for two years and my first ever competition was in 2015, when I got a score of 181.

“I am very pleased with how I have performed. I really enjoy playing and want to play in more competitions.”
