THE county Junior Men’s side begin their South West Counties Under 25 League campaign tomorrow against Devon.

They have made a fine start to the season and not lost on any of the nine rinks they have played on so far in normal regulation time.

For the SWCL match against Devon tomorrow at Vivary Park, Taunton (2pm), team manager Adam Tanner has named only three players with Worthing experience in the White Rose Trophy all at skip – Tom Warner and Nick Revell as well as Westlecot’s Michael Titcombe Junior.

Tanner has instead opted for the up and coming young male players in the county and gives a debut to young 12-year-old Jamie Shadwell, son of Wiltshire’s former England international and World and Commonwealth Games medallist Graham Shadwell.

Local players feature prominently in the side with eight out of the 12 from clubs in and around Swindon.

Meanwhile, Wiltshire Bowls Association continued their centenary celebrations with the third in a series of special matches against the Dennyside Bowls Association.

Wiltshire lost by 12 shots at Swindon Bowls Club on Monday, only taking the honours on one rink, but £2,000 was raised for president Dave Richard’s chosen charity, Wiltshire Air Ambulance, through collections and auctions held after the match.
