Connor Cinato has made a big early impression at the World Indoor Bowls Championships by knocking out last year’s runner-up.

The youngster from Kettering defeated the world number five Andy Thomson MBE in the first round of the competition held at Potters Resort.

Cinato took the first set 8-5 before Thomson levelled it by taking the second.

It then went to a tiebreak which the Northamptonshire man claimed at the third end.
