England's James Chestney "disappointed" with performance in lawn bowls final

James Chestney admits that he is 'disappointed' to have not won gold in the men's fours at the Commonwealth Games, but says that it is still a great achievement.

England's James Chestney has confessed that he was not happy with his display in today's lawn bowls men's fours Commonwealth Games final.

Hosts Scotland found themselves 5-4 down after four ends, but they battled back in style to win the contest 14-4 and leave England with a silver medal.

"I thought we played reasonably well to start with – we held a few good heads but Alex [Marshall] played a few good conversions with his last bowl," Chestney told reporters.

"They came on to a better game after that and I'm just a bit disappointed with my performance because I didn't turn enough heads and didn't play as well as I would have like to have done. We got a foot in the game but I just found the last bowl difficult today and I didn't turn the heads over.

"It's the Commonwealth final – it's the highest level you can play at but I never enjoy losing. At the minute it's a bit disappointing but when I look back I'll be happy – I said before I came that I would be happy with a medal."

England's women's pairs also lost out in the final earlier today.
