East Lothian 22/3

Following on from the recent Senior Singles success of Janet Fairnie there was more national success this week for the Garden County as our Youth Triple in the shape of Kieran Dodds, Aaron Betts and Danny Stevenson tasted national success in Ardrossan in winning the SYIBA event in a tournament that went right to the wire.  Things didn’t start too well in the six team round robin format and after three rounds the triple had lost 5-6 to West of Scotland, defeated East Kilbride 5-1 and again lost 2-6 to Prestwick.  However, a 7-1 win against Abbeyview gave them a lifeline and a glimmer of hope.  It meant in the last set of fixtures East Lothian had to defeat Turriff and hope Prestwick slipped up, which is exactly what happened, with the East Lothian trio winning 12-1 and Prestwick losing 3-5 to West of Scotland meaning four teams tied on six points, however, Keiran, Aaron and Danny had the best shots difference and were national champions.
