Eilidh having a face off with a seagull before playing her last bowl on an extra end to win the final


How does it feel to win a National Championship:

It was a very proud moment for all four of us considering we were definitely considered the underdogs in the competition and it was also our first year playing together as a team


Advice to upcoming bowlers:

Never give up and enjoy every game. You’re never too young or too old win your first gold medal. Believe in yourself as after all, sometimes the underdogs come out on top


Future aspirations in Bowls:

Go on to win the British Isles at Leamington Spa in 2021 and return to Northfield national finals
