Around the greens
On Tuesday last week it was the Ladies West of Scotland District Final at Croftfoot. Kingswood was represented in the 2 Bowl Pairs, Pairs and Fours.
In the 2 Bowls Pairs Joan Whitehill and Rachel Magee were up against stiff opposition from Mount Florida and with the game all square going into the last end the Kingswood team ditched the jack and won the game.
In the Pairs, Emma Lockhart and Alison Robertson played Pollokshaws and remained in the lead for most of the game eventually running out comfortable winners.
In the Fours Kingswood was again matched with Pollokshaws and, although this game was close throughout, the team of Margaret McElveen, Edith McWatt, Helen McGregor and Chris Holland were seven up going into the last end and won by six shots.
The inter district games are at different venues in about two weeks time.
