The gents hosted the In­vi­ta­tion Triples on Satur­day and won an en­ter­tain­ing fi­nal match.

The home team of John McIn­tyre, Andy Ste­wart and Tam Devenny came out on top over Half­way trio John Smith, Char­lie McIn­tyre and Hugh Geb­bie. This week the gents are back on the green in the Wil­son Triples.

The RDBA Triples League con­tin­ued on Tues­day night with two de­feats against Half­way and Dis­trict. The league con­tin­ues this week with fix­tures against Burn­side.

The se­nior rep­re­sen­ta­tive games con­tin­ued in the Cam­bus­lang and Dis­trict League. White­field played Kirkhill in the two-rink for­mat record­ing two wins and now sit at the top of the league.

The La­nark­shire Dis­trict 26 matches brought a mixed bag of re­sults with two wins and two losses.

The Mon­day night gents ag­gre­gate was won by Bert Latkowski and Jim Mol­loy.

The ladies ag­gre­gate was won by Anne Grant, Elaine McCann and Lyn David­son. The last week was a busy one with a lot of ties be­ing played by those still in­volved in com­pe­ti­tions.

Sun­day saw the club’s an­nual Ry­der Cup game against Ruther­glen take place. Af­ter the first six sin­gles games Burn­side were 10 -2 down and things were look­ing bleak.

Burn­side cap­tain, Iain Mack­in­tosh, ral­lied the pairs, triples and fours teams with some in­spi­ra­tional words and all the teams took heart to storm back into the lead.

One of the triples teams, made up of James El­born, Ken­neth Stir­ratt and su­per skip Alex Aber­crom­bie even got a nine at one end which is rarely seen in the triples game.

By the time the last six sin­gles games were to be played, Burn­side only needed to win two of the games and fi­nally man­aged to come out on top in three of the games.

The club would like to ex­press their thanks to Ruther­glen for their hos­pi­tal­ity on the day.

The Mon­day night ag­gre­gate game was won by the team of Scott Steven­son, Alex Fer­gu­son, Alan McLen­nan and skipped by Jim Gib­son.

They won by an im­pres­sive 22 shots on the night.

They now go for­ward to the next round at Queens Park on Tues­day, Au­gust 1.
