It was on for young and old

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

IT’S ob­vi­ous from this photo that there is a few years dif­fer­ence in age be­tween these two bowlers. Try 96 years. Yes, 96. Echuca’s old­est res­i­dent, Jim Sta­ple­ton, 105, and Ja­son Brighton, 9, re­cently played in the same rink in City Of Echuca Bowls Club’s di­vi­sion 5 pen­nant side.

Club pres­i­dent Pat Scram be­lieves the age gap be­tween the two team­mates would have to be or close to a Guin­ness World record. And you would imag­ine there wouldn’t be too many se­ri­ous chal­lengers for that hon­our.
