League Fixtures now available for the 2017 season.
Congratulations to Falls BC who have made the Internet. Featured on BBC Get inspired section for their bowls taster development days. Get your friends along to Falls on 21st or 28th and “Get inspired”.
Early leaders in the various leagues feature a nice mix from across the association – Pickie A , Ards A, Belmont B, Old Bleach B and Mossley B in Divisions 1-5 and Transport in Midweek.
The PG competitions have thrown up their fair share of inter club ties. No more so than in the Triples where the following emerged with bragging rights – A Montgomery (NICS). M Devlin (Transport). P McEwan (Falls). A Hughes (Dunbarton)
Inter – Association team selectors named 20 players from just 5 clubs for the event hosted by the Private Greens at Belmont on the weekend of 27/28 May. Been a while since we won so let’s get over to Belmont and roar our boys on.
Results – some complaints about slow league results but please remember those who give up their time to keep you informed can only do so with the co-operation of those sending in scores. Be on time and you will get a good service.
Finally a depressing observation as membership, numbers paying capitation fees and championship entries all continue to decline. We need to address this and the GP committee will be considering strategies but we all need to get out there and bring new blood in before the decline is terminal.
