Players with a Physical Disability/Sensory Impairment

Sunday 9th August 2015 - Longniddry Bowling Club

                                                                                                                       

After last year's successful annual event held at Longniddry Bowling Club, Lothian Disability Sport were delighted to be welcomed back to the club this year - with the weather also being a little kinder than this time last year.

Carole Martin (Longniddry) claimed victory in the combined section (1 and 5) for the second year in succession - however, she was pushed very close in her first match of the day by a re-invigorated Bob Sinclair (Longniddry).  The tie had to be decided by an extra end, which Carole claimed and won 6-5 overall.  This spurred Carole on as she went on to record a convincing match against Campbell Ridge (Kirkliston) and claim first place in the section. 

Results were also mirrored from last year's Ambulant Bowlers (and B3) section as Robert Kelly (Prestonpans) continued his undefeated record at Longniddry, claiming the top prize.  However this victory needed to be decided on points difference as Robert, Gary Clelland (Bellsburn) and Robert Harvey (Independant) all claimed one victory each to make for an extremely competitive group.

Players will now qualify to represent the region at the Scottish Disability Sport National Lawn Bowls Championships on Saturday 5th September at Westburn Park, Aberdeen.  We wish all the Lothian players all the very best.

Longniddry Bowling Club provided an excellent venue again this year with the green in excellent condition and the hospitality second to none.  The club operate entirely inclusively and offer opportunities to players with a disability - hosting two Bradshaw Buggies and providing players with a physical disability complete access to the green.
