Pickie duo Dean Mills and Ryan Cavan have been handed their Ireland debut for the Under-25 Home International Championships at Oxford in September.

Mark Jones, from Portglenone, will also make his first appearance in a green shirt, while five players have been recalled to the side - Bangor pair, Matthew Crawford and Matthew Hastings; Ballymoney's Chris Brogan; Jack Montgomery, from Whitehead, and Balmoral's Mitchell Albert.

St James's Gate player Shane Leonard has been given the captaincy for the tournament that will be hosted at Oxford Bowls Club on September 12-13.

The Private Greens League retained the IBA Under-25 Championship at Belmont over the weekend. Even though they suffered defeat in their final game against the Provincials, The PGL boys still had enough points in the locker to guarantee them the championship.

Meanwhile, Martin Nelson yesterday lifted the prestigious City of Belfast singles title at Belmont Bowls Club after defeating Bangor's Matthew Crawford in the final.
