Stonehaven indoor bowlers find the away matches as tough as they had anticipated

Stonehaven Indoor Bowling Club visited Garioch for their week two match in the Men’s Inter-Club League.

In this season’s section, away matches will be tough and this proved to be that.

Dod Buchan’s rink provided the only positive note which ended in a 60 shots top 100 defeat.

With another away fixture at Buchan I.B.C. this week, improved performances will be required by the majority for anything close to a positive result to be gained.
