Scotland team announced for 2023 British Isles Internationals

We are delighted to announce the players that have been selected to represent Scotland at the 2023 British Isles Internationals.

Scotland will take on England, Ireland, Jersey and Wales at the National Centre for Bowling, Ayr from Friday 30th June – Sunday 2nd July. Following the recent Senior International Trial, 24 players have been selected for both women’s and men’s squads. The players will be separated into two women’s teams and two men’s teams each consisting of 12 players. Each individual team will have a Singles, Pairs, Triples and Fours discipline plus two reserves.

Women’s Head Coach, Wendy Purdie, said: “Congratulations to all the players that have been selected for the British Isles Internationals.

“The team was selected from the international trial games that took place earlier this month, where the players were trialled in different playing positions. This is an exciting new format for the series that will showcase the depth and breadth of international level players we have throughout Scotland. 

“We are looking forward to a home international series where we hope all the Scottish supporters will come to Northfield and get behind the teams.”

Men’s Head Coach, Frazer Muirhead, added: “Congratulations to all the players that will be representing Scotland in the British Isles Internationals later this season.

“The selection process was intense over the three sessions we played at the trial, with so many great players to choose from it was not easy to leave some players out. As this is the first time competing in the new format, we are looking forward to taking on the best in Britain.

“Hopefully we will see large crowds cheering us on and witnessing this great event at the home of Scottish bowls.”
