Nic Gosley – Pialba
Nic was very happy to be selected for the north team.
“It means a lot as I’m excited to represent the north and also my home club Pialba,” he said.
He’s been playing bowls for 15 years after watching his dad play on Sundays and now plays an average of eight hours per week.
Nic’s bowls highlight was winning a national title in the U18s for Queensland and being able to represent his State.
“I would love to make the open State team one day, “ Nic said.
Nic looks up to Ian Taylor and considers Bill Cornehls his mentor. “Bill helped me a lot coming through my junior ranks,” he said.
“Bowls is a great game as it’s one of the very few games you can play competitive sport with your whole family.”
When asked what he’d like to see for bowls in the future, he said that he’d really like it if lawn bowls wasn’t shown on retirement village ads.
“I’d like to see bowls promoted to the younger ages in bowls, to get the ‘it’s an old man’s sport’ out of the game, as it’s a game played by all ages these days.”
