Stonehaven Bowling Club latest results

The Senior Section held the annual Dunnottar Cup competition last week and unfortunately the local team went out in the second round to Polmuir BC.

The tournament, however, was rated a great success by all participating clubs and the eventual winners were Seafield BC who defeated Balgownie BC by 8 shots in a hard fought final.

In accepting the Dunnottar Trophy from convenor Stan Mitchell, the Seafield captain thanked all the organisers for a well run competition.

The Stonehaven Senior Rink, skipped by Jim Roddie which won its way through to the Scottish finals at Ayr had a good win in their first round game against Danderhall M.W. BC but went down by 5 shots to the eventual runners up Alloa Co-op BC in the successive game in terrible weather conditions.

It was a good experience for the Stoney team and will have given them an appetite to progress again next year.

The Bowls Scotland triples competition got underway at the club last week and reached the semi finals stage with last year’s winners and favourites Mark and Alister McIntosh with Francis Tattersall once again reaching the latter stages.

The Senior Singles Championship was also decided last Thursday and Bill Davie made it two in a row when he took the title beating Davie Anderson in the final.

Bill is the fourth player to have won the cup (originally presented for the competition by ex President Jack Stewart) in consecutive years-the others being Mike Dominy, Bob Harrison and Duncan Ewing.
