Stewart Anderson wins World Indoor bowls title

Stewart Anderson

Stewart Anderson beat fellow Scot Paul Foster to win the World Indoor bowls titles in Norfolk.

The opening set was shared 10-10 after third seed Foster came from 10-6 down with two ends to go to level it up.

The second set was equally tense with Anderson 6-1 up after four ends and 9-5 up after eight only for Foster to level it at 9-9 and force a one-end shootout.

And it was the ninth seed who held his nerve to emerge victorious 10-9 for his first world title.

"I can't believe it. I'm very proud," said the 27-year-old afterwards.

"Everyone knows coming into an event Paul is the one to beat and I knew I had to put him under pressure."
