BOWLS: Young Watts called up for Oxon's cup opener

8:00am Thursday 29th May 2014

Watlington's Sam Watts is set to make his Middleton Cup debut for Oxfordshire against Middlesex at Oxford City & County on Saturday (2pm).

The county under 25s bowler will play lead in the rink completed by Headington trio Gary May, Jason King and skip Mark Charlett in the South Group Section B opener.

Fellow junior teammate Shane Cooper (Banbury Central) makes only his second appearance.

He plays at No 2 in the rink skipped by Carterton’s Paul Sharman, which also features Banbury Central’s Lee Young and Shiplake Village’s Barry Lambourne.

Bicester’s Rob Pink has been recalled, and will play in a new rink with Headington’s Colin Whitehead and Carterton’s Baden Sparkes, who were unavailable last year, and Headington’s Remy Clanfield.

West Witney’s Kevin Alder also earns a recall and will play No 2 alongside Headington trio Dean May, Nathan Lewis and skip Ian Snowdon.

Carterton’s Alan Prew continues as captain as Oxon seek to improve on reaching the quarter-finals in the last two years.

Banbury Borough’s Keith Holloway is vice-captain.

Oxfordshire: K Holloway (Banbury Borough), I Henwood (Headington), C Carpenter (Banbury Borough), A Prew (Carterton, capt); S Watts (Watlington), G May (Headington), J King (Headington), M Charlett (Headington); L Young (Banbury Central), S Cooper (Banbury Central), B Lambourne (Shiplake Village), P Sharman (Carterton); D May (Headington), K Alder (West Witney), N Lewis (Headington), I Snowdon (Headington); R Pink (Bicester), R Clanfield (Headington), C Whitehead (Headington), B Sparkes (Carterton); AJ Docherty (Banbury Borough), G Schwab (Banbury Borough), R Redford (Banbury Borough), M Sykes (Banbury Borough).

OXFORDSHIRE’S Gary May missed out on a place in the England junior men’s squad following the trials at Royal Leamington Spa.

The Headington star gave a good account of himself, but was unable to secure a place for the British Isles International Series in September.
