U-18 International Test Series -v- Scottish Young BowlER

A fantastic day of bowls began with the first test at 9.30am which consisted of 6 Pairs Games. Refreshingly the 2 teams were both mixed for the first time this year and the standard was extremely high. The Green at Old Bleach was running well, and a good crowd watched proceedings.

To put into a little perspective, Scotland had a trial day at which 90 young bowlers attended. They have produced a strong conveyor belt of talent and this is something that we will hope to copy in the years ahead.

There were some promising performances form the Ireland U-18 team and from a personal perspective I was delighted to see the 4 young girls playing on the team for the first time. What a great future they have ahead of them.

Bowl of the day undoubtedly goes to young Jayden Kyle, son of Irish International bowler Andrew, who with game against in his Singles Match against Aimee Harris produced a top-drawer trail to win the points for Ireland. One to remember.
