After a closely fought final, Rhys Blair, Malcolm Maguire and skip John McLachlan took Argyll Bowling Club’s annual Edith McFadyen Triples title.

The competition was played on a round robin basis and after a lot of close games, Hugh McNair, Neil McCallum and their skip Gavin McLachlan joined the eventual winners in the final.

After a close start to the final, John’s team pulled away and, despite a three from Gavin’s team in the last end, the result was 8-6 to John, Malcolm and Rhys.

A club spokesperson said: ‘Thank you to everyone who took part, and special thanks to McFadyens Transport Ltd for sponsoring the competition and to Charles McFadyen for presenting the trophy and prizes.’

The club begins its quest for the Scottish Inter County Top Ten title on Sunday, at home against Hyndland Bowling Club, the Glasgow champions and one of the most fancied teams in the competition.

Hyndland won the Scottish Triples in 2016 and boast eight Glasgow West and South county players.

Argyll Bowling Club is hoping a good performance and home advantage can see them through to the next round.

The game starts at 2pm and all local support is welcome.
