Garioch’s Connor Milne became the 6th Scottish Young Master when he claimed the title at the Dewar’s Centre on Friday morning. He beat Mark Radigan from Blantyre in a competitive final by 1 ½ sets to ½.      
A large appreciative crowd saw the two players battle on the blue portable rink with both players settling to the carpet well and looking very comfortable in the pressurised environment. The first set was very close with both players leading before Connor took a two shot lead into the final end. With Connor dropping slightly short Mark took his opportunity to score a two and to appropriately tie what had been a very close first set.
The second set was also tight with the players tied at four shots all after four ends before Connor gained a fortunate result in the fifth end and moved from there to dominate the later part of the match and win by a score line of 1½ sets to ½ set.
President Eric George of the SIBA presented the prizes to both players and Connor claimed Garioch’s first SYIBA National title.
Both players will look to continue their fine form when they appear in the SIBA Under 25 Trial on Sunday 22nd November. 

 Two days after his defeat in the SYIBA Young Masters Final Mark Radigan was in action again in the SYIBA Dales Floors Fours competition at Abbeyview. Mark repeated the skills that had got him through to the Young Masters final and successfully skipped the rink of Stewart Fleming, Greig McLaughlan and Stephanie Walker to win the final, beating Inverclyde by 9 shots to 3.
Blantyre reachd the Final after defeating East Fife 13-1 in the Semi Final. An extra end was required to separate Inverclyde and Ardrossan in the other Semi Final when an outstanding bowl from Inverclyde skip John Reid, secured victory for his team of Jordan Crawford, Liam Donnachie and Ryan Kearns. This was the first time Inverclyde had reached a SYIBA final.
