Carnoustie West End Bowling Club
West End have made it two out of two wins in their defence of the Angus League title. Against a strong showing from Muirhead and Birkhill, at Kinloch Street, on Friday night the West End lads, despite fielding a weakend team, held on to an 11-shot advantage at the end. They played host to bowlers from Canmore BC on Saturday afternoon. Despite threatening weather, both teams took advantage of the green to full effect with the West Enders running out nine-shot victors. In the “Scottish” competition every one except the Junior Single won through to the next round.
On Tuesday night at Wormit the West End (2) team of Derry Milne, Ray Gowans, David McGill and Mike Black won a thrilling Hunter Cup title for a third year in a row, the first time the same rink has done the treble since the trophy was first played for in 1915.
This followed a strong performance in the semi-final, at Abbey, against Maryfield the Tuesday before when they ran out convincing winners. On a challenging surface the boys held their nerve in front of a large vocal support. A game played in great spirit, it was sad that someone had to lose, but “that’s bowls” and both sets of supporters created a marvellous atmosphere.
Result: Hunter Cup Final – Newgate 11, Carnoustie West End 12.
