Morris Buchanan – Scottish and British 10 Pin Bowling Junior Champion 1963

Morris Buchanan - Scottish and British 10 Pin Bowling Junior Champion 1963Morris (Moses, my best friend at the time) Buchanan was the first Scottish Junior 10 Pin Bowling Champion at the age of 15 in 1963.

He won the Scottish Championship at the 10 Pin Bowling Centre in Blantyre, which used to be the Dookit Picture House and guess who he put out in the Final… yes yours truly.

Morris, who attended Calder Street Junior Secondary School, went on to represent Scotland in the British Junior Championship in London and to everyones joy, he came home with the Trophy which was presented by Frankie Vaughan who made his entrance by running over the lanes. Morris now lives in East Kilbride. Morris Buchanan - Scottish and British 10 Pin Bowling Junior Champion 1963

Laurie wrote: “My mum was the Captain of the Scottish Ten Pin Bowling Senior Team back in the 60’s. 3 members of the Scottish Team played out of Blantyre and moved to the big Hampden Bowl when Blantyre closed. Mum’s name was May Allan. Irene Greenhorn (also Blantyre born) played in the Scottish Team too. When Ten Pin Bowling was resurrected in the 1990’s , my mum and Irene both made the Scottish Team again, this time the Scottish Masters Team. It must run in the family because both my sisters made the Senior Scottish Team in 1990’s & 2000’s and played in 2 World Championships. Mhairi & Lynne are my sisters. Mhairi coming runner-up in the European Championships in 2003.” Laurie Allan Crothers.
