Newtonhill Bowling Club triumphed in a closely contended final of the Barclay Harvey Trophy at Braemar. At the end of the regulation match against Portlethen Bowling Club, the scores were tied and the game went to an extra end.
In a nail-biting finish, Newtonhill clinched victory by one shot, with the outcome of the match going down to the final bowl.
Despite the near neighbours having to travel to Braemar to contest the final, both teams were impressed by the facilities and the hospitality of the host club.
The victory was the first by Newtonhill in the Barclay Harvey Trophy since 1998, although three members of this year’s team were also on the winning side sixteen years ago.
