Lothian Success at SDS National Lawn Bowls Championship

Christina Nationals Runner Up

Congratulations to Christina McSherry on reaching the final of the Ladies’ LD section at the SDS Lawn Bowls Championships in Aberdeen on 1st September.  After a closely fought match against Fiona Driver of Perth & Kinross Christina ended up losing out by one shot after an extra end but she was delighted with her performance which is her best ever at this event. Other Lothian bowlers also performed well, notably Raymond Brumby who was knocked out at the semi final stage in the Mens’ LD section and Carole Martin.  Carole won the Ladies’ Ambulant (restricted) section last year but this was combined with the Ambulant (unrestricted) section this time round and, despite a close match against Scottish internationalist Barbara McMillan, she was unable to beat the strong opposition.

The full Lothian team who represented the region on the day were: Christina McSherry, Raymond Brumby, Carole Martin, Euan Wright, Carole Martin, Nicola Tuxworth, James Bennett, Paul Clapperton and Margaret Torrance. Well done to all.
