GUERNSEY bowlers achieved a notable double in Dublin, where they not only won the fours and under-25 singles titles, but picked up a silver medal in the pairs for good measure and finished the British championships level with Scotland in terms of overall achievement.

The Scots were awarded the NatWest Trophy as top team, thanks to a complicated countback system that no-one seemed to understand and was left unexplained.

Kris Bichard confessed he was in a daze after winning the British Isles men's under-25 singles championship to become the first Channel Islander to lift a British men's outdoor singles title.

Garry Collins escape from parliamentary duties to play in the British championships paid off as he helped Len Le Ber, Gary Pitschou and Matt Le Ber to a great win in the fours, Guernsey beating a quartet from the host country Ireland, 20-12, in the final.
