Sea­son of suc­cess

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports -

Here is the sec­ond part of our bowls pic­ture spread in­volv­ing win­ners and run­ners- up of Ruther­glen and Burn­side’s fi­nals days.

Burn­side held the fi­nal of the hand­i­cap tour­na­ment, which saw An­drew Wil­son hit top form to de­feat Chris Al­lan in a tense af­fair.

The semi-fi­nal of the Coull Cup was also played out as Boots McDon­ald got the bet­ter of David Rober­ston jnr.

In Au­gust Jim Gib­son and David ran out win­ners against Kenny Stewart and David Ly­burn.

A short-sleeved crowd watched three fi­nals, with the Gents Cham­pi­onship match tak­ing pride of place. Af­ter an en­thralling game the ti­tle went to Stephen Leonard, who won gold on what was his first time in the fi­nal. He de­feated John Sin­clair, who has lifted the ti­tle on a num­ber of oc­ca­sions and who, at 88 years young, is Burn­side’s old­est fi­nal­ist in the his­tory of the com­pe­ti­tion.

The Train Cup was won by Chris Al­lan, who con­quered Wal­ter Matthews to take gold.

Ruther­glen fi­nals day saw Mark Kelsey de­feat Stu­art McIn­tosh for the cham­pi­onship crown. He also went on to win the Pres­i­dent’s Tro­phy against Mur­ray Yule.

In the Vice-Pres­i­dents tie Bill McIn­tosh beat Martin Wa­ters while Alis­dair Camp­bell won the se­nior sin­gles against Wil­liam Wales.

The se­nior pairs match saw Ian Hamil­ton and Alis­tair Ri­ach take vic­tory over Stu­art McIn­tosh and Alex McGre­gor.
