Alconbury Boccia star Paul Akers is aiming for the Paralympics in 2016

Akers, above, Peake and Cambridgeshire teammates Will Hipwell and Jason Rolph were talent-spotted by Boccia England and have been put forward as possible future Paralympians.

Senior Camboccia players Akers, who is 40, and Hipwell will be aiming for the Rio Paralympics in 2016 and Rolph (14) and Peake (13) will be aiming for the 2020 Paralympics. Akers, who came runner up in the Living Sport Disability Performer Award, was even told by the GB coach “to prepare for Rio”, after Camboccia recently won the Gold in the Boccia England Teams Competition.

Akers has had a fantastic first year in boccia, winning silver in the DSE National Boccia tournament, coming fifth in the individual national finals, and captaining Camboccia to a bronze and a gold in national competitions.
