The young guns of the Association start their campaign against East Lothian B.A. on Sunday at Haddington B.C. at 2.00pm. For the followers of the young guns you will know how crucial this first game is.
The East Section is arguably the strongest section to win the coveted top place. With shot difference playing a big part in many of the outcomes.
The Association can be very proud that we are the first in The Scottish Bowling League for Under 25 to be playing girls on merit and not on necessity.
So congratulations to both Chloe Thomson and Colette Thomson from Tanfield B.C. who have not only gained a place in the squad but are selected to face East Lothian B.A. on Sunday.
We also have three new caps representing the boys, Stuart Scott and Scott Moodie from Sighthill B.C. and Euan Gray from Craigentinny B.C.
Spaces were made available in the squad due to the march of time and players no longer under the age limit to play. They did however assist in giving the Association a great 2017 winning team, The League, Calder Cup and Runners Up in the Jim Bell Scottish Cup.
After a very good season at under 25 level where the consistency at this level has been constant for many years it is very disappointing that Bowls Scotland felt that only two players from the most successful Association in 2017 merited a place. So much for the saying success breeds success.
Congratulations go to Liam McKay (Tanfield B.C.) and Josh Spalding (Craigentinny B.C.) who have been selected to represent Scotland.
If possible make the trip down to Haddington and support the young guns.
