Fife Para Bowlers Excel in Club Championships

Michael Simpson and Martin Hunter

Michael Simpson from Auchtermuchty and Martin Hunter from Burntisland are relatively new to indoor bowls. In their efforts to appropriately prepare for the Home Nations Para Bowls competitions in Wales and England this year and the 2017 Test Match on the Gold Coast in preparation for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, they joined East Fife Indoor Bowling Club at Aberhill. What a positive experience it has been for the Para Bowls medalists from the most recent IBD World Para Bowls Championships in New Zealand.

Paired together Martin and Michael won the Gents KO Pairs and they joined forces with Sandy McKenzie and Mick Connelly to win the KO Fours. What a brilliant first season with the East Fife Club and what excellent preparation for the challenges that lie ahead at International level for the leading Scottish B7 Para Bowlers.
