Se­nior bowlers call it a day

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page -

Kirkhill Bowl­ing Club said thank you to two spe­cial mem­bers at the week­end in the best pos­si­ble fash­ion - by win­ning a tro­phy.

The club were crowned the Gem­mill se­niors tro­phy win­ners for the sixth year in a row.

The an­nual com­pe­ti­tion is played be­tween Kirkhill, Half­way and Burn­side on a home and away ba­sis in five sets of triples.

It has been run­ning for around 40 years, and al­ways there to or­gan­ise it is Peter Mullen and Tom O’Brien.

But this week was their swan­song as or­gan­is­ers.

A spokesper­son for the club said:“It is hard to be­lieve but these two young yins with an to­tal age of ap­prox­i­mately a mere 175 years be­tween them, plan to stand down and let oth­ers carry the man­tle next year. They have done a tremen­dous job over the years.”

The pair are pic­tured here flank­ing Kirkhill Pres­i­dent Roy Lin­der, with the Gem­mill Cup.
