Uphall station duo Sandra Steven and Kirsteen McLelland are celebrating once again after landing the Bowls Scotland Ladies Super Series Pairs Title, a fortnight on from landing the Scottish Pairs Title in Ayr.
Steven and McLelland ousted Natalie Docherty and Lorna Cameron 27-9 in the final to land the £1000 prize.
