Some brilliant play saw the final of Campbeltown Bowling Club’s Catherine Bannantyne Memorial Triples go to the last end.

Ten teams battled it out in two sections of five on the Stronvaar green on Saturday June 19.

The two sections were very close at the end of all the games but it was Johnnie McLean’s and Neil Maguire’s teams who qualified from section A and Robert Todd’s and Dugald Graham’s teams from section B.

After two impressive semi-finals, the final was contested by the team of Neil Maguire, Hugh MacDonald and George Allan against the team of Dugald Graham, John Johnston and Peter Colville.

The deciding shot changed hands throughout the last end in the final but eventually Neil Maguire’s triple was victorious.

Club president David Brown said: ‘I would like to thank the Bannatyne family for their continued support in this competition; Robert Todd and his selection committee for organising it; Malc Mitchell for the condition of the green; Jessie Andrew and Jean Miller in the bar; and Catherine McEachran, who fed the teams.

‘What a great day it was and I’m so proud to be president and see us all back playing bowls and having fun.’
