MARVELLOUS Matt Minier has scored the Island’s first competitive maximum tenpin bowling score of 300.The 31-year-old Co-operative retail senior supervisor rolled in the perfect score while playing in a Twilight League match last week.

His magnificent feat came in his fourth and final match on the night and it came on the back of scores of 225, 224 and 236.Minier, who last August represented Jersey in the AMF World Cup in Honduras, said: ‘It was just brilliant.

It’s not often you get the chance to go all the way but thankfully I did.

I’ve been close a couple of times and now I’ve done it I’m so happy.’The final pins fell over and so did I – I collapsed.

It was such a relief and something I’ve really wanted to achieve for a long time.’The 300 score is the seventh recorded in Jersey but the first competitively.Minier has previously scored games of 299 and a 298, the former three years ago at Jersey Bowl while the latter was in Norwich for Jersey in the Triple Crown event last August.Minier added: ‘I’m in good form.

Since the perfect game I’ve had a 267.

I hope I can continue to play well because I want to win the Island singles title.

I’ve not won it before and if I can keep up my form then maybe I can win the Island crown next time round in March.’For his achievement, Jersey Bowl presented the bowler with a mounted pin on a mahogany base with an inscribed brass plate.Guernsey had their first competitive 300 only last month, scored by Martin Presland.
