What a finals day! It is hard to know where to start. Brian’s brilliant draw to get the 2 shots necessary seal an emphatic 21-14 win against Ian Robertson? A pulsating final end in the Junior Singles with a measure for shot giving Alice Jones an incredible 21-20 win over brother Luke? Maybe the sheer quality of bowling by Yvonne Buchanan to grab the prestigious Novice Cup from a gallant Dave McIntyre? Take your pick – it was a brilliant day of bowls!
Congratulations to Sandy Horsburgh, winner of the Thursday Morning League in an incredibly exciting final day. Full details in the Competition News page.
