O’Hagan makes his Mark to qualify for World singles
Cambuslang bowler Mark O’Hagan has qualified for the World Under-25 singles - despite losing in the final of a Scottish competition.
The 25-year-old electrician represented Blantyre Miners Welfare Indoor Bowling Club in the Scottish Under-25 singles last week.
He reached the final of the tournament, which took place in West Lothian, with an excellent 21-19 victory over Jack McNab from Midlothian.
However, the Whitefield Bowling Club member fell short the following day in the final when he lost 21-15 to Andrew Thomson from Aberdeen.
After being well behind in the match, he staged a tremendous comeback but was pipped to the title in dramatic fashion.
However, Mark has now qualified to play in the World Under-25 singles as both the winner and runner-up are selected for the competition.
Mark, of Whitefield Avenue, said:“I played reasonably good to get to the final but didn’t play that well in the final.
“The World Singles will take place later this year near October time, but I’m not too sure where it will be held.”
