Season of success
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.
