AARON Betts is celebrating doing the double after securing the Scottish indoor under-18s’ singles title for the second time, writes Matt Osborne.

Betts quickly dispatched semi-final opponent Aaron Ferguson (Ardrossan) 21-2 to book his place in the final.

Home player Jamie Low (Arbroath) stood between Betts and a second crown at the under-18s singles but Betts continued his early-morning form and wrapped up the title with an impressive 21-8 win.

Meanwhile, with a proud history within the youth set-up, Logan Kennedy (singles), Calvin Dymock and Lennon Rafferty (pairs), and Daniel Gillies, Ryan Harris and Logan Shields (triples) were looking to capture the National Top 6 title for the second consecutive year.

An overall semi-final win against the combined team of Arbroath/Dundee would see East Lothian pitted against Ardrossan, themselves looking strong within the youth set-up.

East Lothian took advantage of an early start in the final and wrapped up the title with wins in singles and triples.

Kennedy was involved in a battle with rival rising star Jamie Noon but a strong performance from the Port Seton youngster handed East Lothian the early advantage in the final.

The triples found themselves a few shots behind at the halfway point before mounting their own mid-game fightback to lose by just a single shot.

Dymock and Rafferty were involved in a close battle that would ultimately decide the eventual winner.

The duo raised the bar over the final third of the tie to secure the win and the title for East Lothian.

Elsewhere, bowls legend Graham Robertson and Billy Dunleavy returned to national senior pairs action after qualifying for the final four earlier in the season.

They travelled to Arbroath to tackle Jim Stewart and Bill McGregor (Aberdeen) in the semi-final.

In a close encounter, there was little to separate the pairs as they entered the closing stages.

However, the Aberdeen duo prevailed by the narrowest of margins (13-12) to take the win.

Closer to home, the ever-popular Jock Brodie competition has reached the semi-final stages.

East Lothian A tackle Perth in the first semi-final, while West Lothian face Midlothian A in the second semi-final.

Both ties are scheduled to take place on Sunday at Meadowmill with a 2pm start, with supporters and guests more than welcome.

Finally, the East Lothian gents’ side face Abbeyview in their final league fixture of the campaign.

With nothing at stake for either side, third place in the table will be the winners’ reward.

Midlothian have all but secured progress to the knockout stages, with East Kilbride returning to the First Division next season.

Ardrossan will be given an opportunity to retain Premier League status via the play-offs.
