Half dozen for Baker

A Diss bowls ace is one of five Norfolk players included in the senior England teams for the men's and women's indoor home international series in Stanley in March.

Carol Baker is representing England for the sixth successive season.

She will be joined by Fakenham Gallow players Jamie Chestney and a recalled Mervyn King, who was unavailable through work commitments last winter.

Tim Stone of Acle retains his place and there is a new Norfolk name in the England line-up following a call to the senior women's team for UEA student Rebecca 'Bex' Field, a member of Norfolk BC.
