Bronze for Ross at Eu­ros

East Kilbride News - - SPORT -

Ross‘The Boss’Mont­gomery was among the medals at the Europe Cup as he claimed bronze in Bu­dapest.

The Green­hills thrower part­nered fel­low Scot Alan Soutar in the pairs event, but they fell at the semi-fi­nal stage to Dutch duo Kleer­maker and Land­man.

It was enough to earn bronze for Scot­land, who fin­ished fifth over­all at the team com­pe­ti­tion in Hun­gary.

The Boss said:“We played re­ally well. Alan was great all tour­na­ment and was un­lucky not to win gold in the sin­gles.

“We gelled well as we al­ways do and over­all it was a good per­for­mance.

“I’m just dis­ap­pointed we didn’t get out of the group in the team event. That’s where most of the points are and we fin­ished third in our group. Rus­sia beat us 9-4 and Repub­lic of Ire­land beat us 9-6, so that was frus­trat­ing.

“It’s still quite an achieve­ment when you con­sider there was a record 38 teams com­pet­ing this year.

“I’ve won six Europe Cup and six World Cup medals, so that’s not a bad tally over the last few years.”
