Rutherglen Reformer - - BOWLS -

Last Satur­day Burn­side hosted four teams from Partick, Bel­la­hous­ton , Killer­mount and Sandy­hill Bowl­ing clubs in our an­nual City Cup match.

A highly com­pet­i­tive game de­vel­oped with wins for two home teams with the other two teams be­ing de­feated.

Over­all the home team man­aged vic­tory with the over­all score be­ing Burn­side 76 and Glas­gow 73.

A smash­ing day was had by all with thanks once again to Nancy and her cater­ing team for pro­vid­ing the pur­vey.

In the Glas­gow League fix­ture against Nit­shill BC the Burn­side away team man­aged a draw with the home team los­ing.

It was a bad week in the R&D triples with Burn­side los­ing both home and away fix­tures.

In the Cam­bus­lang Dis­trict Se­niors Burn­side man­aged a home win with this be­ing off­set by an away re­verse.

Burn­side also hosted our tra­di­tional an­nual fix­ture with the Burn­side and Blair­beth Church church which as al­ways was en­joyed by all who par­tic­i­pated. On this oc­ca­sion there was no di­vine in­ter­ven­tion and Burn­side BC were vic­to­ri­ous on the night.

Many of the club tour­na­ments are now reach­ing the se­ri­ous stages with fi­nals week­end at the end of Au­gust.

On Fri­day night the Burn­side Triples tour­na­ment reached quar­ter fi­nals stage with some crack­ing matches. The bot­tom half of the draw threw up an up­set which saw the un­fan­cied team of R Davie, M Stir­ratt with new mem­ber A Shanks mop­ping up at the back dis­pos­ing of the cur­rent hold­ers of the ti­tle skipped by P Docherty .

It was a strange game with both sides get­ting bogged down at times and the lead chang­ing hands on a reg­u­lar ba­sis un­til A Shanks de­liv­ered the fi­nal bowl to seal the game to dump the hold­ers out the com­pe­ti­tion.

Flushed with suc­cess the three­some will roll for­ward to fur­ther ac­tion this com­ing Fri­day, Au­gust 14..

The Mon­day night ag­gre­gate was won by the ex­pe­ri­enced out­fit skipped by David Robert­son Jnr with Chris Allan, Steve Jack­son and Iain McIn­tosh mak­ing up the num­bers. round of the GBA as Ea­gle­sham was un­playable. Only the Pairs of David McMona­gle and David Hutchin­son won and so Crook­ston won the match 6 points to 2.

On Wed­nes­day it was the Ladies GBA fi­nal at Lint­house and this time the Kingswood Fours were up against Kelvin­dale. The Kingswood team started very well and took an early lead of 8-1, but this was not to last as Kelvin­dale be­gun to cap­ture the green and ran out wor­thy win­ners.

Last Thurs­day in the gents Cath­cart league, Kingswood se­cured three wins from four against Well­croft, but the league is be­yond them.

Kingswood also played in the Glas­gow league against An­nies­land and se­cured two wins. Hopes are high for pro­mo­tion back to the Premier League af­ter rel­e­ga­tion from it last year.

Also last Thurs­day the ladies played in the fe­male equiv­a­lent of the Par­lia­men­tary Tro­phy orig­i­nally spon­sored by Caro­line Harris, wife of for­mer MP Tom Harris.

Kingswood hosted the pre­sen­ta­tion as win­ners from last year. Each club fields three triples teams and this year only Well­croft won all their matches and lifted the tro­phy.

Fi­nally, last Sun­day the Kingswood Mixed Triples was held and the two teams that com­peted in the fi­nal were Ali­son Robert­son, Joe McKe­own and Alan Brown against Iso­bel Docherty, Yvonne Marr and Billy Thom­son. The fi­nal was a very close match and with the game against, Billy threw his last bowl and trailed the jack to win the match and tro­phy.
