Ashley sm-ash-es into the England Junior International Team
Bowls England has named seven new caps in its team to defend the British Isles Bowls Council Junior International title in Belfast, Northern Ireland, this weekend.
And one of those seven new faces is GANF's very own PE Teacher, Ashley Caress.
Ashley (22) has won multiple county titles and secured a national championship back in April. However, selection for England is the pinnacle of his already impressive bowls career.
“My dad took me to a bowls tournament when I was 15 and I’ve been playing ever since. I’ve won a few titles now but winning the Men’s National Triples in August, with my Dad, was my greatest achievement so far.”
“Working with the pupils at GANF is very rewarding and I want to show them that they can achieve anything if they really work at it. The pupils are excited and really want us to win in Belfast.”
All the staff and pupils at GANF wish Ashley and the England Team all the best, for this weekend!
