Lothian experience successful foray into National Indoor Bowls

Lothian experience successful foray into National Indoor Bowls

Nine Lothian bowlers were selected to compete at the first ever Scottish Disability Sport (SDS) National Indoor Bowls Singles Championships held on Sunday 17th April at Falkirk Indoor Bowling Club.

The inaugural event saw 49 players compete over the weekend as players with a physical disability / visual impairment participated during the Saturday and players with a learning disability battled it out on the Sunday. 

The sole Lothian representation on the Saturday was West Lothian’s Gary Clelland (B6) who left victorious after wins against Billy Allan (Fife) and Fraser Mathieson (Forth Valley).  The Sunday saw the real influx of bowlers from the East of the country and it proved an extremely successful day as Amanda Craig (West Lothian) secured the ladies section A title while Midlothian’s Raymond Brumby took the runner up spot in the male’s equivalent with a spirited show in the final.  The male section B final was played out by two Lothian bowlers as John McMillan (West Lothian) narrowly edged out Edinburgh’s Euan Wright.  Christina McSherry came close to securing the woman’s B section title but was defeated by her opponent from Glasgow culminating in a runner up medal for the West Lothian bowler.  The remaining Lothian contingent were Gordon Graham (West Lothian), Jacqueline Vickers (West Lothian) and Lisa Wilkie (Midlothian).

This event, coupled with the outdoor and carpet bowls events that are offered both regionally and nationally clearly highlight the opportunities available within the sport for participants with a disability.  If you are interested in finding out more information about local opportunities, please contact Neal on 0131 475 2364 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
