Immediate past captain of Cardigan Bowling Club 22-year-old Michael Newcombe has been selected for the Wales Under-25’s in the British Isles Indoor Championships next month.

The former Welsh Under 25’s outdoor champion plays indoor bowls for Bro Myrddin in Carmarthen and his selection is seen as reward for the outstanding form he has shown this term.

Newcombe will represent his country in County Antrim, Northern Ireland (February 8-9).
