Bowlers get set for new season

Last Tuesday saw the seniors win a nail-biting league match at Wilton. With the last triple still on the green, and Buccleuch just one shot up, it all came down to the last bowl and the visitors securing victory by two shots. Best for Buccleuch were B. Rorrison, M. Bell and C. Birchley (skip), 16 up.

Also last Tuesday, the ladies’ game at Melrose was cancelled due to heavy rain.

The men crashed to a comprehensive defeat at home to Gala in last Wednesday’s league match. With two rinks drawn and three heavy defeats, the scores was 120 for the visitors and 63 for a dejected home team.

Buccleuch’s Mary Martin lost out by 21 shots to nine in last Thursday’s East of Scotland singles quarter-final against Eleanor Haldane, of the Juniper Green club. The tie was played on the Colinton green, Edinburgh.
