ISLANDER Andy Frost has reached the final of the men's hammer at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

Former Sandown Bay Academy student Frost, 33, who has won several gold medals for the IW at the NatWest Island Games, is representing his new home, Scotland, at the competition.
After a qualifying round this morning (Monday), Frost had the ninth furthest throw to reach the top 12 and make tomorrow night's final, which will be on the BBC from 8.50pm.
Fellow IW thrower Nick Percy, 19, also representing Scotland, will be aiming to reach Thursday night's discus final on Wednesday morning.
In lawn bowls, Newport-born Lucy Beere, representing Guernsey, came fourth in her group and failed to progress to the knock-out stages in the ladies' singles. She had three wins and two losses from her five group games.
