Bowler Michael Simpson will represent Scotland at this summer’s Commonwealth Games.

The Auchtermuchty sportsman’s selection was confirmed this week as his name was listed amongst the para sport lawn bowling team.

Michael joined a further 30 athletes across three sports – Boxing (9), Para-Sport Lawn Bowls (7) and Wrestling (14) - selected to represent Team Scotland at Glasgow 2014.

Glasgow 2014 will see Scotland’s para-sport lawn bowlers compete in the Games for the first time since 2002 in Manchester, where they collected the gold.

The B6/B7/B8 Triples team of Billy Allan, Michael Simpson and Kevin Wallace have already tasted success on the greens at the Kelvingrove Lawn Bowls Centre, where they won the 2013 Eight Nations Commonwealth Invitational Championships.
