BROADWAY club star Amy Stanton successfully defended her Under 25s Women’s World Council Indoor Bowls title in Fraserburgh.

Stanton’s first game in her round-robin section was a tough encounter with Scotland’s Michelle Keenan.

The England ace lost the first set 9-1 before a lowscoring second saw the Worcestershire player triumph 6-2 after nine ends. She won the deciding tie-break 2-0.

Stanton, who works at Fosseway Garden Centre, Moreton-in-Marsh, won all five round-robin games before setting up a final rematch with Keenan after beating Kirsty Gardiner 2-0 in the semi-finals.

After four ends, Stanton, representing the Malvern Hills indoor club, was 5-0 down but she picked up the next five to win the first set 9-5.

The second was close and she went into the ninth end one shot down but then picked up two for an 11-10 victory, sealing her third successive world title.
