PAISLEY Indoor Bowling Club’s gents team are hoping to make up for last year’s disappointment when they start their league campaign on Saturday.

Rink one will consist of N Gedde, I Cowan, R Taylor and D Fisher.
Rink two will feature D Faulds, G MacLeod , C Bence and J Gilmartin. In rink three, J O’Sullivan lines up with G Wiggins, D Stobo and one other as yet unnamed player.
Rink four will be competed by S Fisher, L Young, D Moffat and J Ross.
The ladies side also kick-off their league season this weekend and are hoping to get off to a great start in their home tussle against Glasgow.
The game starts at 2pm and the girls are looking for a good home support to come out and cheer them on in their efforts at the Wallneuk Road Stadium.
The team for rink one will see I McCready line up alongside A Clark, I McLaughlin and J Ritchie.
In rink two, V Wilson, A Whitelaw, G Palmer and H Dobson have been named alongside one another.
