Campbeltown Courier - - SPORT -

A CAMP­BEL­TOWN team bowled its way to third in the Scot­tish cham­pi­onships at Ayr.

David Reid (skip), Craig Kerr, Paul Gru­moli and Shaun Gru­moli from Ar­gyll Bowl­ing Club, re­cently trav­elled to North­field af­ter qual­i­fy­ing through their dis­trict.

On the Wed­nes­day morn­ing they won their first game 22-12 against Al­loa East End.

Reid sealed the game with a take­out shot for seven. They won on the Fri­day morn­ing vs In­ver­ness 22-14.

In the quar­ter-fi­nals, against Hilling­ton, Reid again played the win­ning shot with the last bowl in the last end, with the game against him, to win by two shots for a place in the semi-fi­nals.

Joyce Oxbor­row, from Ar­gyll Bowl­ing Club, said: ‘Un­for­tu­nately, the semis were one step too far and our boys lost to a very strong Irvine Park, the even­tual win­ners.

‘They came away proudly wear­ing their bronze medals.

‘A big thank you is due to the club and all our supporters for ev­ery­thing they did to make sure the boys got there and back safely and for their loud sup­port.’
