Busy day for bowlers

IT was a busy day for Cumbernauld Indoor Bowling Club on Saturday at the stadium with both the senior gents and the ladies at home in the inter club leagues.

Thursday, 24th November 2011, 2:00 pm

The senior gents had a very successful day coming through strongly towards the end to defeat the West of Scotland club by 80 points to 66. Cumbernauld skips first: T. Anderson won 20-16; J. McConnachie lost 20-22; J. B. Wilson won 23-13; T. Turnbull won 17-15.

The ladies were up against the current unbeaten league leaders who had several national players in their team and were beaten on the day. Skips: J. Miller and S. Wilson won their games but unfortunately the national players in the other two games were too strong for the Cumbernauld teams skipped by A. Cairnie and W. Wightman, and the overall game was lost.

However, praise must go to the teams for continuing to give their best to the end.

Hopefully the result will be better on Saturday when the ladies are away to Alloa.
