Brown­ies en­joy

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Kenny Smith

Kirkhill Bowl­ing Club in­tro­duced a new gen­er­a­tion of young play­ers to the sport.

They re­cently in­vited a group of girls from the 1st Cathkin Brown­ies to try out the sport, at the club on Ste­warton Drive, Cam­bus­lang.

Kirkhill are ac­tively try­ing to en­cour­age younger peo­ple to take up the sport, and their first visit had the Brown­ies along on a cold wet night.

Club vice-pres­i­dent John O’Brien said: “We have an aim to pro­mote bowl­ing with young peo­ple in ex­ter­nal or­gan­i­sa­tions and plans to make con­tact with schools sports co-or­di­na­tors and other cen­tres.

“We think bet­ter equip­ment would make the game more at­trac­tive ini­tially and it would be more com­fort­able if we had proper out­door shoes and jack­ets in small sizes.

“We have not for­got­ten our older gen­er­a­tion though as ex­per­i­ment­ing with bowls down­siz­ing can be made eas­ier with the new smaller bowls we hope to pur­chase.

“Fol­low­ing the last Brown­ies visit, Mar­ion Flem­ing, the group leader
