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.”
