There was joy for the Huntingdonshire Bowls U25 EBF team as they reached the national finals for just the second time in their history.
Their previous appearance in 2018 brought the title and this year they have battled past larger counties like Norfolk and Suffolk to seal their spot at Skegness next month.
Team manager Alan Blackley said: "I am very proud. We have a wide range of ages and experience in the squad and I think we have a healthy outlook for the next five to 10 years in this competition.
"I now have a nice headache of only being able to pick nine players from a possible 14 to play the final."

Then, between August 5 and 7, the club will host the the Bowls England Regional Finals in the over 55 singles, pairs and champion of champion singles, each day starting at 10am.
