Arbroath bowling club

Friday night saw the Seniors Angus league team take on the Angus league team. Billed as ‘Fergie’s select’ against ‘Meelos manuels’, the game was played with a good competitive spirit. The seniors started slowly but as the game moved to the latter stages they threw down a strong challenge. But alas it was all to no avail as the league team just held on thanks mainly to one rink having a big win. The zimmers will be wanting revenge next year. The club would like to thank all players and officials for donating generously and a donation will be sent to Cancer Research.

Closing day: A list is now on the board for names for closing day on Saturday, September 27.

Newgate Bowling Club

Gents Consolation Singles Final

Last Thursday evening the Gents Consolation Singles Final was played between Graham Skelton and Brian Robertson.

Graham had the best of the early exchanges with Brian trying his best to get on even terms picking up the odd shot with termination to keep in touch with Graham but Graham had other ideas and finished a worthy winner 21-8.

Mixed Pairs Final

Last Friday afternoon the Mixed Pairs Final was played between the pair of Mary Burnett and Ian Teviotdale and the pair of Margaret Cargill and Willie Smith (2).

Margaret and Willie got off to a good start and built up an early commanding lead of 11 shots to one but the fat lady had not sung yet and Mary and Ian rallied to go into the last end leading by five shots.

Mary and Ian held on to their advantage running out worthy winners. The trophy was presented after the game by Lady President Pat Smith.

Henderson Trophy

In this two-rink competition involving the Angus clubs, the rink of Allan McIntosh, Sye Pearson, Billy Sturrock and John Stirling played Baxter Park at Carnoustie and returned with a + 6 shots result and the rink of Willie Smith (2), Mario Szatan, Tom Reid and Forbes Szatan played Friockheim at the Abbey and won with a comfortable + 20 shots margin.

However, the score was not quite good enough as Balgay returned with a total of +37 shots to take the title. Newgate were a joint second.

Monday Points League

The last game for the season was due to be played on Monday past with three players in with a chance of taking the top spot with Tom Reid on 28 Bob Spence on 26 and Scott Sibley on 25 points who were all in with a chance depending on the outcome of the last game. All three players were drawn to play in the same team so the outcome with Broughty was not going to change the result at the top of the table so due to the inclement weather there was no point in playing the last game so the Points Trophy went to Tom Reid.

Dave Donaldson Memorial Trophy

The annual Dave Donaldson Memorial Trophy against the Royal British Legion was played last Sunday with six mixed rinks. The Royal British Legion had won the trophy for the past five years but not this year as the Newgate put in a stronge challenge to lift the trophy by six shots.

ABBEY bowling club


With the nights drawing in Abbey is now in a mad rush to complete all competitions before it gets to dark.

In the semi-final of the Handicap neither player was able to catch the green which didnt make for a great game however winner on the night was Jim Fairweather taking the game 22-16 against Peter McKay.

In the Final Bryan Williams couldn’t find the form that he had shown in the earlier rounds and Jim took advandage playing very well never gave Bryan a chance and won 23-8.

It was to be a similar story with the semi-final of the nominated Fours as Fred Cook, Craig Paton, David Gow and Peter Speirs never really got started and suffered for it as Declan Johnston, Neil Paton, Bob Tosh and Jim Arthur took the game 18-7.

The final was a more intense game in which Declan, Neil, Bob and Jim struggled early on but a late revival saw them take the last four ends 2-1-1-2 but it was,nt enough as they lost by one shot 12-11 toSean Matthew, Jim Cuthill, Peter McKay and Ali Burnett.

The nominated Pairs final was a tight game with neither side running away from the other and after 17 ends the game was all square at 11 all requiring an extra end to decide the outcome.

The winning shot went to Burnett Taylor and Malcolm Anderson 12-11 against Dave Wilson and Jim K. Paterson. In the final of the Consolation Cup, Bryan Williams found the form that has carried him through a good season as he took the tie 18 - 8 against Frank Farmer.

The weekend away fixture was at Invergowrie, but unfortunately the home game was cancelled as Montrose were unable to field a team, however, those Abbey members that turned up had a game amongst themselves which proved to be a very enjoyable afternoon.
