Commonwealth Games Scotland have confirmed that Inverurie’s Carla Banks has been selected to represent Scotland at lawn bowls at the 2015 Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa.

As was reported in last week’s Herald, Carla won the 2015 Commonwealth Youth Games Selection Finals in Glasgow on Sunday (March 1), and that her name would be put forward for
selection.

Carla (16), who plays at Garioch Indoor Bowling Club and on the outdoor greens at Inverurie Bowling Club, will head to Samoa with a wealth of international experience having represented Scotland at both Under 17 and Under 25 level for the past three seasons.

She held her nerve to close out an incredibly close final in the selection event, emerging as the winner 21-20, to book her place on Youth
Team Scotland.
