Around the greens

Half­way and District The McPike 1+1 Pairs took place at Half­way and District where 26 teams took part.

The even­tual win­ners were Gor­don Shanks and Martin McIl­ree who de­feated Jim Stod­dart and Watty Is­lip in the fi­nal.

The Clyde Re­frig­er­a­tion In­vi­ta­tion Rinks will take place on Satur­day, June 3, the draw will be made on Mon­day night so any teams still to enter are en­cour­aged to do so be­fore then.

The LBA first round ties took place last Thurs­day and Half­way made it through in the sin­gles, triples and fours. Martin Wil­son beat Wran­golm Hall 21-13 in the sin­gles. Alan Lorimer, Ste­wart Dun­smore and Martin McIl­ree beat de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons White­field in a cracking game.

John Smith, Char­lie McIn­tyre, Stephen McIn­tyre and David Fer­gus beat Ud­dingston.

In the sec­ond round to­mor­row, Thurs­day, the sin­gles are at Mother­well and the triples and rinks are at The Mur­ray in East Kil­bride.

The se­nior fours lost against The Mur­ray last Thurs­day and the U45’s were de­feated by Dalzell last Satur­day morn­ing.

The se­niors, ladies and gents Bowls Scot­land qual­i­fiers be­gin this week, re­sults to fol­low next week.

In the WOSWBA ties the triples and pairs lost their first round games. The sin­gles will play on Mon­day, May 29.

There were mixed for­tunes in the RDBA first round ties last Tues­day.

Watty Is­lip lost in the sin­gles but Alan Barr and John Kerr made it through to the next round of the pairs. The triples got a bye.

The pairs and triples played their quar­ter fi­nals at Burn­side on Tues­day night hop­ing to make it through to next Tues­day’s semi -fi­nals at Ruther­glen.

The Gilliland League team kept up their 100 per cent win­ning record with another con­vinc­ing win over St Leonards last week. This week’s op­po­nents are the un­beaten Croft­foot. An away win would vir­tu­ally as­sure Half­way of a place in the fi­nal with a game to spare.

Next week the op­po­nents are Tem­ple­ton at home. Jack Wil­son will rep­re­sent the club in the RDBA un­der 16s and will play his quar­ter fi­nal tie at Kirkhill on Satur­day morn­ing at 10am.

The se­niors started their District 26 league cam­paign on Mon­day and man­aged one win against Ud­dingston and two losses against Larkhall.

David Fer­gus was part of the La­nark­shire South team that bounced back from los­ing their open­ing game to de­feat Ste­wartry at Raploch on Satur­day. This week they host Ayr­shire South at Gar­rowhill.


The Mon­day night ag­gre­gate game was un­for­tu­nately brought to a halt by heavy rain.

In the Gilliland League, Dougie John­ston, Scott Steven­son, Christo­pher Al­lan and Marc Stir­ratt (skip) again did the club proud by pro­duc­ing a con­vinc­ing win against Toll­cross.

The last week also saw suc­cess for Burn­side in the Glas­gow Bowl­ing As­so­ci­a­tion games with the pairs, triples and se­nior four’s all pro­duc­ing vic­to­ries. The club would like to say a very well done to them all.

The un­der 45s team proved that youth can also be vic­to­ri­ous when they won their game against Kirkhill.

The one cloud in a suc­cess­ful week was when both teams in the Cam­bus­lang and District Se­nior four’s failed to de­liver a vic­tory.

The draw has now been com­pleted for the nom­i­nated pairs ties and are now dis­played on the club no­tice boards. The club would like to re­mind ev­ery­one to ar­range their ties as quickly as pos­si­ble.

Work has now started on the ten­nis courts and ev­ery­one at the club is look­ing for­ward to the ren­o­va­tions be­ing com­pleted.

This Fri­day’s North Eastern League game is against Rid­drie BC.


In the R and D cham­pi­onship last Tues­day the sin­gles, triples and se­nior fours pro­gressed to the next round. The sin­gles play this Tues­day even­ing at Kingswood, triples at Cam­bus­lang and the se­nior fours play at Tem­ple­ton in the af­ter­noon. Ruther­glen host sin­gles and pairs on Tues­day even­ing.

The club pairs and se­nior fours won through to the next round of the GBA cham­pi­onships last Wed­nes­day. The pairs play this Wed­nes­day even­ing at Wood­end and the se­niors in the af­ter­noon at Hawthorn.

In the Bowls Scot­land district play-offs the triples, se­nior sin­gles and se­nior fours A and D teams won last Thurs­day. This Thurs­day even­ing the triples are at Cam­bus­lang, the se­nior sin­gles at Kirkhill and in the af­ter­noon the se­niors A and D teams are at Cam­phill and Ham­p­den re­spec­tively.

The Mon­day even­ing ag­gre­gate game was aban­doned due to heavy rain. This Satur­day the club has the very en­joy­able 4-3- 2-1 com­pe­ti­tion.
