LDIBIS Falkirk 2024

Day One round up with Janice Gower: After a rousing opening ceremony the games for the Munro Cup began in earnest. A fabulous atmosphere in the stadium and England the defending champions got off to a great start with some very close bowls across their rinks with Harry Aitken (England) playing a superb last bowl in the level two pairs game. Which meant England led the table after the first session of games.

In session two, Millie Campbell, of Wales, had a resounding 21-3 victory in the singles. But again it was the defending champions England who secured more points and at the lunch break the table scores were: England 10, Wales 8, Scotland 6.

After lunch, we moved to session three and Scotland came out with a determined stride. Taking several of the games right to the wire but coming out on top in all four games they played in the session. Table after round three: Scotland take the lead with 14 points, England have 12 and Wales are on 10.

So to the final session of the day and it was an intense session with the scores ebbing and flowing across the rinks. The game of singles between Gemma Broadhead (England) and James O’Brien (Wales) was a fantastic game of singles with Wales coming out winning after a tight measure 15-13. Final standing at the end of day one: Scotland 20, England 16, Wales 12.
