Bowling Away from Home

CHAMPION bowler Kath Stevenson is getting all set for what will be the most far-flung match of her career so far.

The Stranraer star has just been selected to represent Scotland in a Test series in Windhoek which, as everyone knows, is in Namibia in South-West Africa.

Kath (55) has been playing bowls for about 20 years and already has six caps for Scotland. Away from the bowling green she and her husband Wallace run a guesthouse in Stranraer. But for now, Kath is packing her bags in preparation for her exotic trip to Namibia a week on Sunday.

She will travel north to Glasgow, from where she flies to Heathrow. Then there is a flight to Johannesburg in South Africa before catching an interconnecting plane to Windhoek.

Along with Kay Moran and Joyce Gourlay, Kath will represent Scotland at the Windhoek triples event. Joyce Lindores will be added to that trio to make up the Scots’ rink in the fours event. The ladies will be flying the flag for Scotland and playing against countries from all over the world at the May challenge series.

As well as hoping to collect some silverware, the Scots competitors also have the chance to pick up ranking points which will help them in their quest to make it into the squad for the Commonwealth Games.
