Ellon are through to the semi finals of the District play-downs for the National Championships in both the singles and fours events.
Last Thursday, Alistair Campbell defeated Steve Milne from Tarves 21-16 to progress to the semi-final where he will now play Kemnay. Steve’s son Connor fared much better in the Junior Singles, defeating Ryan Davidson from Abergeldie 21-2.
The Ellon fours (Derek Jobson, Phil Anderson, David Stevenson and Craig Dinnes) accounted for Inverurie 19-12 to reach the semi-final and now play Rothienorman. The semi-finals are to be played at Polmuir & Harlaw Bolwing Clubs on Thursday 9th June.
This year’s Club Championship is now underway at Ellon and there was a shock in the first round. Last years club champion, Alistair Campbell, went down 21-14 to Phil Anderson.
The pick of the 2nd round ties looks to be the match up between Grant Campbell and Craig Dinnes. Ellon Bowling Club is due to host the Buchan County team on Saturday 11th June at 2pm, for their Cities & Counties match against Highland.
