Guernsey's Heather Watson and Jersey's Scott Clayton have both been given wild cards for Wimbledon 2019.

Watson, whose ranking of 122 left her outside the cut-off for direct entry, will make her 10th singles appearance at the Championships.

The British number two, a former mixed doubles champion, has reached the third round three times since making her debut in 2010.

Clayton, meanwhile, will return to the sport's biggest stage for a third time, partnering fellow Brit Liam Broady.

The 25-year-old is ranked 155 in the world for doubles and won back-to-back Challenger titles earlier this year after coming back from injury.
