A COVENTRY teenager is powering his way to success after qualifying to play for his country at a tri-nation tournament.

Jay Goodwin has been bowling since the age of seven and his increasing development and efforts in the sport has led to an England call-up for a junior triple crown competition in Norwich against Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The 16-year-old has attended England’s ten pin bowling academy for the past three years while turning out for Nuneaton Vipers Youth Bowling club, who are based at MFA Bowling at Bermuda Park in Nuneaton.

Goodwin, who averages 193 and has a personal score of 286, has bowled for the Under-15 Warwickshire county team and he also went on to win a silver medal for the Under-18s at the County Championships last year.

The Whitley Academy pupil won a bronze medal in the singles category at the National Championships back in May and took home a silver medal in the combined events too (singles, doubles and team).
