Steven Fraser and Mike Mennie retained their District Pairs Title with a great performance in the finals of the District 3 play-downs at Woodend Bowling Club last Thursday (16th June).
They defeated Graeme Duguid and Davie Farquharson from Westhill to qualify for the National Finals in Ayr. Also on the way to Ayr is Andrew Thompson from Inverurie who had an excellent win against Craig Burnett from Westhill in the junior singles event. Ellon Bowling Club were represented in two of the finals with Alistair Campbell losing out in the district singles final against Alan Mackay from Westhill. The Ellon Fours made up of Phil Anderson, Charlie Singer, David Stevenson & Craig Dinnes, lost out to Abergeldie.
It was also a disappointing week for Ellon in the Buchan League. A six shot defeat to Peterhead on Tuesday evening now means that New Pitsligo are the hot favourites to take this years Division 1 Title. The draw for the Buchan Bowling association Top 10 competition has seen holders Ellon drawn away to Crimond in the first round of this years competition. First round matches will be played on Monday 25th July.
