A prolific Burnley bowler is refusing to let a potentially debilitating condition restrict her progression in the sport.

Lisa Harrison was born with Scoliosis - an abnormal curvature of the spine - but continues to dominate after winning another four trophies this season.

Lisa, who has won more than 30 competitions in her career, triumphed in the Ladies Doubles tournament at Scott Park, helped Causeway to victory in the Ken Musk Trophy final over Lowerhouse, reigned supreme in the final of the Mixed Doubles competition at Blackpool’s Waterloo Hotel and recorded the best average in the Pennine League.

And there were also a number of near misses. The Lancashire county representative finished runner-up in the Hargreaves Cup in Blackburn, came second in the Ladies Singles tournament at Blackpool’s Norbreck Castle Hotel, finished runner-up again in the Muriel Glover Trophy at Queens Park - a competition she has won six times - reached the semi-final of the Ladies Singles at the Cliffe Hotel, made the semi-final of the Taylor Vase Trophy at Queens Park and made the final four of the Mixed Doubles at Queensgate.
