But there is no place for Ipswich’s Ben Barker or King’s Lynn’s Richie Worrall.

The Belle Vue and Edinburgh man has been called up for his SWC debut by boss Neil Middleditch who has been impressed by his form so far this season.

He joins Swindon and Berwick man Edward Kennett at the King’s Lynn event along with established international stars Chris Harris and Tai Woffinden.

Said Middleditch: “I’ve gone for experience with Edward Kennett rather than throwing in two debutants. I know he can do a job for the team in this meeting.

“It was a hard call and congratulations to Cookie, I’m delighted for the lad and I made the final decision based on statistics and when I’ve seen him.

“It’s going to be a tough meeting but I have every faith in my boys to do their country proud and I’m sure we will enjoy fabulous support as we always do in this event.”
