Three in Irish team

THREE young bowlers from the Lurgan area have been selected for the Ireland under 25 indoor team.

They are 16 year old Kristofor Matchett, Irish Youth Outdoor Singles Champion, 15 year old Conor Prunty and 11 year old Reece Millar.

This is a tremendous achievement on their part at such a young age with Reece being possibly the youngest ever to represent his country in the bowls game.

They play every week during the indoor season at the Watson Stadium, Shaw’s Bridge, Belfast and having been observed by the Irish selectors they were invited to join the squad sessions and eventually were chosen for the team.

They will be looking forward to be playing for the under 25s in the Quadrangular International Series to be held in Nottingham on Saturday and Sunday, January 7 and 8.

Kristofor and Reece play their outdoor bowls at the Lurgan club.
