Monday the 24th July saw a gloriously sunny day mark the beginning of the ‘Bowls Scotland National Championships at Northfield.
We had representatives in the Ladies and Gents senior singles, the Junior singles and Ladies Senior fours.
Unfortunately Nan Davies went out to Prestonpans Castlepark in the Ladies singles and Ryan Gualtieri went out to Kircolm in the Junior singles.
However, Jim Craig won his first round Senior singles against Holytown and went back on Tuesday 25th but lost out to Bankfoot.
The Ladies senior fours had a marvellous 3 days with wins against Dumfries, Newmains and Galston which got them into the semi-finals against Whitburn.
Wednesday morning saw the weather take quite a turn for the worse and Whitburn ended their run which sadly meant they didn’t quite make the final.
Congratulations to the ladies on their bronze medals and on a terrific achievement by all the players in getting to Northfield and representing the Club so well.
