Issy Allen signs for McKendree University

In the last few 10 years more UK bowlers have taken their talent Stateside to the USA to Collegiate bowling. Probably the most famous now is Verity Crawley who became a big success over the pond in her time with the Webber University. Following in their footsteps now is England’s top rated Isabel Allen who was 2019’s top UK female performer who took Masters and Team Gold in the EYC  and a double Bronze in the 1st World Youth Championships.

Writing on social media Issy said.

I am so pleased to announce that today I signed my National Letter of Intent to continue my Bowling and Academic career at McKendree University in Illinois this August for the next four years!

I want to say huge thank you to my family and friends for being there with me throughout my bowling journey.
A special thank you to Shannon and Bryan O’Keefe for this amazing opportunity!

I am so excited to see what the next four years have in store and can’t wait to bowl with an amazing team!! ???
