BILLY Mellors entered the record books at the Scottish National Championship finals at Northfield yesterday as the only winner of the National Junior and principal outdoor singles titles.

In 1996, he won the Junior title representing Pilrig, and yesterday, flying the Goldenacre flag, the 32-year-old added the singles title.

Mellors made it to the final despite a mid-match slump against Danderhall's David Peacock. He was leading 15-1 but Peacock made it 16-16 and held a match lie before Mellors replied with a 1, 2 and 1 finish to win 21-19.

Northfield's Craig England, 19, beat Burnhead's Barry McGregor 21-13 in the other semi-final.

The final was tied five times and Mellors recovered from 14-10 down at 17 ends, scoring eight successive shots to take an 18-14 lead and, although he lost a single on the next, punched England's holding shot out to earn a treble and take the title at 21-15.

The Junior singles were won by Andy Duncan, 23, from Kintore, while Montrose's Maurice Brown, Darren Smith, Scott Pirie and Scott Murray won the Fours title and Port Glasgow's Donald Cameron, Eddie Docherty, Duncan Sorrie and James Quye the Senior Fours.

In the pairs, Gifford's Willie Wood and cousin Brian Bissett beat Carrick Knowe 16-14 and in the triples, Robert Brown skipped Eddlewood team-mates Graham Thomson and John Docherty to a 19-13 victory over Campbelltown Argyll.
