Bowls England has named 14 players on the provisional shortlist from which to select the team for the 2016 World Championships in New Zealand.
The squad includes all those players that successfully participated in the Atlantic Games in Cyrpus late last year, which acted as a pre-qualifying event for the World Championships.
The men’s shortlist therefore sees Cyprus representatives Andrew Knapper (Berkshire), Robert Newman (Berkshire), Graham Shadwell (Wiltshire), Louis Ridout (Devon), Jamie Walker (Northamptonshire) joined in the provisional squad by Devon duo Robert Paxton and Sam Tolchard.
The women’s shortlist features the five Atlantic Games Gold Medal winners Ellen Falkner (Cambridgeshire), Wendy King (Kent), Sophie Tolchard (Devon), Rebecca Wigfield (Northamptonshire) and Jamie-Lea Winch (Leicestershire) with Katherine Rednall (Suffolk) and Amy Stanton (Worcestershire) added to the shortlist.
