Bowlers tar­get glory in West Loth­ian

BOWLS

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - DRIVE - By Jim Fowlie

NA­TIONAL men’s and women’s pairs, triples and fours semi-fi­nals and fi­nals are be­ing played at West Loth­ian this week­end.

Tur­riff’s women are in the pairs and triples.

Frances Thom­son and Net­tie Robert­son line up against World Bowls fi­nal­ist Lor­raine Mal­loy and Sharon Leitch, of Bal­bardie, in the semi-fi­nal.

This won’t be easy, but the wily Net­tie has been round the course be­fore.

In the triples, Kath­leen Gor­don, Val Wade and El­iz­a­beth Fraser’s en­counter with East Fife’s Les­ley Gor­don, Kath­leen McAn­drew and Celia Smith should be in­ter­est­ing, with half the field in­ter­na­tion­als.

Stone­haven’s Daniel Colvin, David Bail­lie and Paul Hay have done re­ally well to gain a place in the triples semi-fi­nal and face Cum­ber­nauld.

El­gin play in both men’s and women’s fours.

Vera Cruick­shank, Iso­bel Smith, Iso­bel Laing and skip Me­lanie Cruick­shank are to the fore in the women’s event and take on Whiteinch.

A strong Mo­ray quar­tet of Graeme Don­ald­son, Nor­man Barker, Andrew Barker and Mike Step­ney have a game on their hands against East Loth­ian’s Mark John­ston, Mal­colm Higgen­botham, Jamie Hig­gins and Derek Oliver.

SLID­ING IN: Ch­eryl An­der­son is stopped in her tracks.
