Carrie McLean (Scotland)

An A to Z of Team Taylor

Carrie McLean (Scotland)

Carrie was born in 1998 in Irvine, Ayrshire.  She started playing bowls at the age of 8 encourage by her family who all play. From that young age she started and continues to play at Auchinleck IBC and plays at Cumnock and Catrine outdoor.

Carrie enjoys playing with her Vector VS size 2 as they have brought her a lot of success. She says: "they have a steady and consistent line which I like."

Her nickname is "teapot" apparently because she stands like a teapot when she plays!!

Her funniest moment in bowls has to be the time when one of her more confident friends went on to play a tie with their stickers on their bowls changed around the wrong way and didn't realise. You can imagine what happened!

Currently Carrie is a student at Auchinleck Academy and her favourite book is "To Kill a Mockingbird". She most admires David Gourlay in the bowling world.

Bowling achievements:

2016 - The youngest ever lady at the age of 17 to receive full International honours for Scotland!

The following year, still being the youngest ever Scottish U25's champion, she also became the second person to ever win back to back Scottish titles at the age of 14. Furthermore, in the same year in 2014, at her first attempt at the WIBC singles, she became the youngest every under 25's champion!
