Stowmarket High School’s Katherine Rednall has this afternoon made history as the youngest champion in world bowls history.

Rednall, 18, beat Rebecca Field in the final of the world bowls ladies singles at the Potters resort in Hopton, Norfolk.

Playing live on BBC 2, Rednall – who would normally have been in a double textiles lesson at school – dominated the match, winning two sets to nil, 14-4, 11-3.

She said: “I can’t believe it, I’m really pleased.

“I came into it as I would any other game. I knew it was going to be tough, but I thought as long as I could get my first bowl on the jack and keep going then I’d be alright.”

She added: “I want to say thank you to everyone who has come to support me over the past week. The amount of support I’ve had has been ridiculous.”

  • Historic repetition of history in the opening par there fella. Historical. Is there a sub editor in the house, or is it simply that no-one cares any more?

With eight games to go, Ipswich Town are still not safe from relegation to League One, following a tough season in the Championship, and lost 3-1 at Cardiff City at the weekend.

Ipswich may have broken out of their run of straight draws – but a 3-1 defeat isn’t really much to shout about.

Ipswich Town defender Tommy Smith has told a newspaper in New Zealand that he is 100% committed to playing for the national team, ahead of the All Whites’ World Cup qualifiers against Fiji.

Mick McCarthy says his managerial record is the reason for his longevity at Portman Road, not owner Marcus Evans’ perceived patience with his managers.

Ipswich Town will not be backtracking on their decision to raise the price of season tickets, despite a huge outcry from supporters.

Loan duo Dominic Samuel and Jonny Williams made timely injury comebacks last night as a strong Ipswich Town Under-23 side drew 1-1 with Crewe at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town have suffered a double injury blow with the news that forward duo David McGoldrick and Tom Lawrence have had to withdraw from the Republic of Ireland and Wales squads respectively.

Ipswich Town fan and football reporter WILL RIDGARD gives his view on the controversy surrounding the increase in season ticket prices at Portman Road...

It’s the start of a fortnight for fans to fester on Ipswich Town’s current state of affairs – and we want to hear from you.

Ipswich Town have finally recorded a result which is not a draw.
