Bowler to Carry Commonwealth Baton

BOWLER Kathleen Stevenson has been chosen to carry the Commonwealth baton on part of its journey to Manchester to the Commonwealth Games.

And she hopes to see it there if she is picked for the Scottish bowling team.

The baton will arrive at Stranraer from Northern Ireland by Stena Line ferry on Saturday, 8th June.

It will then be carried in stages by a succession of 5000 runners in 50 days to the North-West of England in time for the official opening of the games.

Kathleen, who lives at "Braemar", Carlton Terrace, Stranraer, discovered she had been chosen as one of the 5000 when she opened a letter giving her the details.

Her part in the ceremony will take her 500 yards through part of Cairnryan.

She is in the nine-strong Scottish women's bowling squad from which the final seven will be chosen.

So she is keeping her fingers crossed that being asked to carry the baton is a lucky omen and that her name will be on the list when it is finalised.
