Around the greens: White­field and Half­way

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport -

On Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 8, White­field hosted the fi­nal tour­na­ment of the sea­son, the Mixed Bal­loted Triples, jointly spon­sored by Hef­fer­land Cater­ing and Bir­rell Cor­rance, Funeral Di­rec­tors.

This was an ad­di­tional tour­na­ment to the sched­ule with He­len Flan­ni­gan, David Hef­fer­land and Michael O’Ha­gan win­ning the fi­nal against Muriel Doyle, Martin McIl­ree and David Rus­sell.

And as the sun sets on an­other bowl­ing sea­son, it is fit­ting to re­flect on what has been a re­mark­able year on the green for the club. Suc­cess has come at county and na­tional lev­els for a num­ber of play­ers. Claire Walker was the run­ner-up at the na­tional championships at ladies un­der 25 level and con­tin­ues to rep­re­sent the na­tional team as cap­tain of the ladies ju­niors.

Mark O’Ha­gan also reached the na­tional championships in the Gents un­der-25s and was joined by White­field’s gents triples of Andy Stewart, Michael O’Ha­gan and Michael Docherty.

At County level, Mark Law, Alas­dair Pa­ton Ju­nior and Michael Docherty won the La­nark­shire Bowl­ing As­so­ci­a­tion Triples.

Suc­cess also fol­lowed for the club’s La­nark­shire League Divi­sion 8 team who are pro­moted after win­ning their ti­tle.

While bowl­ing re­mains the club’s main fo­cus, it is also worth not­ing that their an­nual Pres­i­dent’s Charity Day raised £4,200 for Ruther­glen Com­mu­nity Car­ers in recog­ni­tion of their work with de­men­tia suf­fer­ers. Half­way and District thanked all who par­tic­i­pated in this year’s charity cof­fee morn­ing that was held on Fri­day, Septem­ber 23. An amaz­ing to­tal of around £3,500 was raised and will be di­vided equally be­tween MacMil­lan Can­cer and The Beat­son.

A big thanks goes to the fol­low­ing busi­nesses who pro­vided prizes: Dr Gor­mans, Blue Ru­pee, Farm­foods, Mar­ion’s Flow­ers, Sam’s Dragon, Equi’s, Spices, Mark Wright Foun­da­tion, Jas­mine House, In­dian Fu­sion, The Tu­dor, Pek­ing Palace, Slaters, Head Room Only, In­di­ana Dome, Fratelli’s, Tun­nocks, Shang­hai De­light, In­ner Peace, Z Cars, Cinnamon Club, Celtic FC, A1 Wok, Cur­leys Butch­ers, Pan­dora’s Box, Ten­nents, New­ton Arms, Bir­rell Cor­rance Funeral Di­rec­tors, Gary and John McPike, Wm Mor­risons, Forsyth Glaz­ing, Spe­cial­ity Cakes, Am­bi­ence, and Fin­lays.

As well as the weekly Satur­day night live mu­sic en­ter­tain­ment (non mem­bers are wel­come), there will be a disco / karaoke this Sun­day at 5pm and a pre­sen­ta­tion of prizes will take place on Satur­day, Novem­ber 5 at 7pm.
