The 15-year-old has been named in the squad for the British Isles Indoor Bowls Council U18 International Series during October after impressing in an under-18 international trial at Rugby Thornfield IBC on Sunday.

Morphett also competed in the same event in Aberdeen last year, winning the singles competition and helping England claim the overall team title. He will again play singles at this year’s event in Bristol and will play at two in the triples team.

The Bexhill Academy student won the indoor county pairs and under-25s singles titles during March. He also helped England to victory over Wales in a two-day under-18 outdoor Test match last September.
