Sian one to watch out for

Milford Mercury: (2759773) (2759773)

A YOUNG woman from Goodwick has become the latest player to watch out for on the boccia circuit.

Thirty year-old Sian Jones joined the Welsh squad for a Welsh boocia open event held at the Sport Wales National Centre in Cardiff lastweekend.

Eighteen players from Wales and Ireland went head to head in a mixed class competition.

Sian, who competes in the Paralympic BC2 classification, played in five close games finishing 12th overall.

Angela Miles, disability sport development officer for Sport Pembrokeshire, said Sian was a player to look out for in the future.

“She played some terrific shots and I’m sure with more intense training will be one to watch out for.”

Sian trains with boccia club, Crymych Panthers, at Haverfordwest Leisure Centre.
