Members from across Kintyre battled it out in Kintyre SWI Group’s annual bowls tournament.

Umpire Kathleen McGougan kept a close watch during the five-hour competition, to which Southend members turned out in force.

The heats started with seven ends being played in each competition match at the Masonic Hall, Campbeltown.

Southend worked hard to reach the nine ends final as the Largiesiders, though scarce in numbers, put up a good challenge at every stage.

Persistence and experience eventually paid of for Jane McCorkindale and Marion Warnock, who took the 2019 trophy and winners’ title back to Southend, leaving Jessie Main and Enid Williams from Largieside in their shadow.

An evening meal held at the Argyll Hotel brought a very energetic and enjoyable day to a close.

Group chairperson Patricia Fair thanked everyone who had helped make the event happen.
