THERE were Top Ten celebrations for Polmaise bowlers last Sunday following the club’s success in the final of the Stirling County competition.
The Stirling green was the setting for the last major event of the outdoor season and the final proved to be superb contest with Polmaise and Grahamston both finishing on four points and 63 shots.
However it was Polmaise by virtue of Iain Bone’s 21-8 singles success over Stuart Carsewell, that earned them the Top Ten silverware which they last held in 2002.
The pairs contest was also won by Polmaise with Gary Malcolmson and Sandy Deans winning 21-15 over David McIntosh and John Mackie.
In the triples Grahamston’s R Stoddart, A Coutts and A Anderson finished 15-9 ahead of David McEwan sen., Mark Bone and Derek Logie, while in the fours, Grahamston’s R Finnie, D Gardner, R Paterson and A Kemp triumphed 25-12 over James Brown, David McEwan jun., Peter Black and Danny McCormick.
THE annual fundraiser for Strathcarron Hospice was held by the Central Association last Sunday at Cambusbarron green. Fourteen clubs participated and £370 was raised for the hospice.
Winners were Tillicoultry’s Tom Kay, Tony Thornton and Murray Greasley, while runners up were Vera Whyte, Alan Tait and Gordon Whyte (Denny).
