St Neots’ young stars are bidding for a place in a national semi-final this Sunday.

The Saints face Ipswich in the quarter-finals of the Under 25 Double-Rink competition.

They have already negotiated three rounds by seeing off City of Ely (48-33), Spalding (39-31) and Boston (47-33) before Christmas.

The St Neots team boasts a number of new faces this season including young prospect Mack May, who is just 11.

Rebecca Moorbey, the reigning English Bowling Federation Women’s Under 25 singles champion, has also stepped into the team for this season.
