THREE City of Ely bowlers have qualified for world ranking tournaments.

Andrew Easy, Nicky Brett and Andrew Ware will join their club-mate Greg Harlow, who qualifies automatically because of his world No 2 ranking.

City of Ely press secretary Rosemary Ware said: "This is a fantastic achievement. We usually have at least one or two players in the big tournaments, but to have four is superb."

The opening World Bowls Tour event is the Engage International Open, starting in Sheffield on Sunday.

Harlow, from Soham, has won the competition for the last three years. His record-breaking achievement has seen him unbeaten in 18 matches at the venue.

Easy, Brett and Ware will also be competing at the event after successfully qualifying in Leicester.

Brett has also qualified for the Scottish International Open, which starts on November 24.

And Ware, who won a Lincoln qualifier, will join Harlow at the World Indoor Championships at Potters Holiday Resort in Hopton, Norfolk, on January 7.
