It’s been an exciting week for Midlothian’s young Bowlers. The last chance to represent the county in the National Finals at Ayr was grabbed by the triple from Polton.

S Mackie, L Deveney and G Low beat the girls from Loanhead MW (A Baxter, T Beurle and R Drynan) in the final of the regional qualifying competition.

Seven days later, Midlothian put itself firmly back onto the bowling map.

A rink went to compete in the Alan Michie Trophy (Scottish Counties Championship for under 14s), held this year at Newbridge Bowling Club. And after a long day’s play, with some fantastic bowling skills on display, the Midlothian youngsters were crowned Scottish champions!

Congratulations go to R Muir and S Charters (both Easthouses BC), J MacNab (Gilmerton BC) and R Allen (Loanhead MW BC). Reserve on the day was S Mackie (Polton BC).
