The finals of all the remaining Competitions are due to be played this weekend and a large crowd is expected at the Recreation Grounds on Saturday and Sunday.

The major competitions are the Singles and Pairs Championships and along with the Gordon Pyper Pairs, the 4x4 Pairs, the two bowl and Handicap Singles and the Seniors Pairs it will make for a busy and exciting two days of first class bowling.

Last weekend a Stonehaven Pair won the Annual Kincardine and Deeside Champion of Champions Competition held at the Recreation Grounds.

Well done Bob Harrison and Roger Smith who defeated the Bervie BC pair skipped by David Keith in a close match, winning by a single shot, thus denying David of a winning double having triumphed in the singles the previous week.

The Senior Top Nine Competition reached the semi final stage last Thursday at Balgownie and Stonehaven have made the final for the first time after a good win against Culter BC by 4 points to 2.

Individual match results were:

Pairs

J. Roddie/A. Binnie……16 Culter……….11

Triples

D. Ewing/W. Davie/J. Lawson…..19 Culter…..9

Rinks

J. Aitken/G. Buchan/M.Nevill…..8 Culter…….14

The Seniors hosted an Angus Select last Wednesday and after an exciting and very close finish the Stoney team took the spoils by 4 shots.

Individual rink scores were (Stonehaven skips first):-

M. Nevill……………10 R. Ferguson……………19

R. Smith…………….10 A. Brankin………………12

R. Thomson……….16 F. Cook…………………..12

G. Buchan………….10 F. Findlay………………..11

H. McGillivray…… 15 D. Martin………………..9

R. Harrison……….. 20 D. Strachan……………..14

The Seniors Teams have had a great season (only losing twice) and the main reason for that could be that there have been plenty of players interested in playing for the Club which is in no small part due to the competent way the season’s matches have been organised by the Match Secretary.
