Congratulations to Jonny Stokes from Luton Town BC who has been selected to represent Disability Bowls England. On Sunday 28th February Jonny travelled to Nottingham to compete in the national trial this included a full days bowling. In the morning he took part in some skills and coaching sessions and in the afternoon he represented the South of England in a triples match against the North of England. Jonny said “The green was faster than I’m used to but soon got the hang of it”. Mo Monkton the England manager told the trialists the team for the Home International Series would be emailed out on Tuesday. Sure enough on Tuesday 1st March Jonny got the email into his inbox he was waiting for and was selected to play in the Home Nations Championships to be played at Kelvingrove home of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games on the 10th/11th/12th June 2016.
Everyone at Bowls Bedfordshire wishes Jonny all the best and are really proud of his achievements
