A rink representing Berwickshire Indoor Bowling Club competed in the finals of the Scottish Indoor Bowlsing Championships at Prestwick at the weekend.

The Four of Robert Paterson, David Kerr, Stuart Bebbington and Graeme Forsyth were beaten narrowly by Auchinleck 21 shots to 19 in a very close encounter on Saturday morning at Prestwick.

But the trio of Kerr, Bebbington and Forsyth went on to play the Triples semi-final against Arbroath in the afternoon. They played very well and never really looked like being in any danger with a quite a comfortable win by 17 shots to 14, progressing them through to Sunday’s final.

In the final Berwickshire faced Blantyre from Glasgow, but they never got going with Blantyre running out comfortable winners with 20–6 scoreline.

This was the Berwickshire club’s first year in the competition and they should feel very proud of their achievements.

Club official Jim Cumming said the players would like to thank everyone for travelling to support them in the finals at Prestwick.

“It was a memorable weekend, and their support was very much appreciated,” he said.

The Club will also be looking to add new members for the season 2014 – 2015.
