He later became a regular member of the England bowls team, winning a silver medal in the 1974 British Commonwealth Games pairs competition with Peter Line. He reached the quarter-finals of the World Indoor Bowls Championships singles competition in 1991.In April 2001 he played in a trial to return to the England team for the first time since the 1982 83 bowling season, and later that year qualified to play in the 2002 World Indoor Championships.

He ran a bowls tour company which ceased trading in 2008.
