Scar­bor­ough’s bowls sen­sa­tion Jack Bird sealed the Na­tional Men’s In­door Sin­gles ti­tle for a sec­ond time on Satur­day.

The 21-year-old picked up his sec­ond ti­tle at the event in Mel­ton Mow­bray, see­ing off 26-year-old Ryan Whit­lock from the Torquay United club in the fi­nal.

Bird beat J Philpott from Spald­ing 21-14 in the first round be­fore a 21-12 vic­tory in the quar­ters against C Ci­nato from Kingsthorpe.

A 21-18 win in the semis against M Tit­combe of Westle­cot set up his fi­nal clash against Whit­lock, which he won 21-10 to seal the ti­tle.

Fol­low­ing on from his suc­cess in the sin­gles event, Bird was also part of York­shire team that de­feated de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons and five times win­ners Devon 42-39 in the fi­nal of the Na­tional Un­der-25 In­ter-County Bowls fi­nal.
