Association crowns it’s Champion of Champions
ELDERSLIE Wallace Bowling Club was the setting for this year’s Paisley and District Bowling Association Champion of Champions Finals.
And the spectators were treated to another thrilling afternoon with players going for trophies in no less than six categories.
In the Singles event, Jonathan Ross from Priorscroft and John Adam from Victoria were this year’s finalists.
In the end, though, Ross just edged it in a thrilling game 21-19.
In the Under-30 Singles the two men to reach the final were Colin Parker, who represented Anchor and Meikleriggs ace Martin Murray.
This was another game that proved too close to call but in the end Parker snatched the title with a 21-19 win.
In the Pairs Final, William Young and Archie Suttie from Wellmeadow were up against Neilston’s Alex McDaid and David Walker.
This game proved a match too far for the Wellmeadow duo as they lost out to McDaid and Walker 10-25.
Elderslie Wallace members David Perrit, Willie Killens and Gary Wiggins represented the host club in the Triples final and their opponents were Caledonia’s R Bogle, Tam Wright and John Houston.
This game was slightly more one-sided as the Elderslie team clinched the title with a 29-4 win.
In the Fours, the finalists were Norrie Geddes, Tam NcNeil, John Sullivan Junior and Harry Queen from Anchor.
They were up against PT Lavelle, A Lyle, D McDonald and J Galbraith from Ferguslie.
Winners on the day were the Anchor team with an 18-14 scoreline.
And in the Senior Fours, the Renfrew team of Jim Kerr, Allan Watters, Fred Crawford and William Bell were the ones celebrating after they beat their counterparts from Elderslie narrowly 14-13.
Saturday’s event was sponsored by J&W Goudie Funeral Directors.
Company representative Tommy McShane was on hand with Laing Guthrie, president of the Paisley and District Bowling Association, to present Provost Celia Lawson, who was there to enjoy finals day, with a lovely bouquet of flowers.
The Association would like to thank everyone who helped make the day such a success – all the umpires, players, workers behind the scenes, the spectators and, of course, J&W Goudie for their valued support.
