Carnoustie WE are champs!

DESPITE losing their unbeaten record at home to Maryfield on Friday evening, Carnoustie West End have won the Angus Bowling League Division One championship as nearest challengers Forfar could only draw away to Newgate. West End now have an unassailable three point lead with only one match remaining.

Broughty moved clear of the relegation zone with a victory at home to Canmore, but Monifieth remain in danger despite defeating Abbey at home.

In Division Two, Barnhill kept their promotion hopes alive with a narrow two-shot win at home to Longforgan, but will require at least one point from their final fixture at home to Letham in order to go up.

Muirhead are Division Three champions on shots difference from Baxter Park. Broughty Castle finished third and Carnoustie were fifth.
