Scotland's Darren Weir at last succeeded on getting his hands on the Imagine Cruising World Under 25 Singles title at Potters tonight. (Saturday 20th January 2024)
Beaten in the final for the last two years by Daniel Pool, Weir worked his way through this year's semi final against Aussie Jack East, winning 12-5, 9-5 while Pool saw his hopes of taking the title for the third years in succession fizzle out in a great semi-final against Cambridgeshire's Rebecca Moorbey 8-6, 2-11, 2-0.
In the title decider, Weir, a decorated player for Scotland in the varying age groups and who has gained full international credentials over the years, proved too strong for the Bowls Administrator for the St Neots club, who also has an exemplary CV both indoors and outdoors.
Weir scored nine shots on consecutive ends on the back straight to win the first set 13-3 and, despite only playing nine ends in the best of two sets of eleven ends, he scored heavily, counting two fours and two trebles to win the second set 14-6 and take possession of the Langham Glass trophy.
