TWO local pool players have been called up for international duty, after England blackball trials in Middlesbrough.

Jonny Lincoln will again represent his country after finishing second overall at the trials. He helped England to finish third at the European Championships in Ireland last year.

He plays for Stirling Knights in the Bridlington Pool League, but had to re-qualify to keep hold of his place in the squad.

Meanwhile, Coachman Hawks’ Paul Stroud is celebrating after earning a call-up to the England Seniors squad.

He also won five of his six games at the trials.
