Pix:Scotlands Oldest Lawn Bowler

A SCOTS lawn bowler who turned 100 this week has been invited by the Guinness World Records to apply for the title of ‘world’s oldest bowler’.

John Wishart celebrated his century milestone at his sheltered housing home in Fife on Monday, and despite his poor eyesight, still makes it to his local bowling club at least once a week.

He is Scotland’s oldest-known bowls player and a spokeswoman for the world records keeper says he could be in with a shot of being named the world’s oldest.

John, who is a member of Hogan’s Heroes rink at Headwell Bowling Club in Dunfermline, says he can remember a time when the top prize was a “steak pie or half a pound of butter”.
