Here are some photo`s of the CDBA Champion of Champions finals which took place at Yarrows B.C.
The club have had an excellent year and we were represented on the day by three teams, namely the singles, triples and seniors rinks.
On the day the seniors rink of Gordon Laird, Blair Graham, Gerry Kane and Jim McGinley were unfortunate in their game, with every break seeming to go against them, but that is bowls, and Scotstounhill`s name is on the trophy...
The Triples of Davie Keel, Colin Laird and Joe Kerrigan were 11-0 down in their game only to find the resolve to come back and win against a very good Dalmuir team.
The Champion of Champions Singles game was everything that we would want to see in a final..... 20 -20 going into the last end and both players taking and losing the upper hand over the course of the game. Finally on the second last bowl Charlie Steel of Scotstounhill, lying 3 down, knocked the jack back to save game with his last bowl, only for Grant Russell to draw to the jack with the last bowl of the game and win the trophy.....
A wonderful day of bowls, and a credit to Yarrows B.C. for hosting the day and to all who turned up to watch, and the players for entertaining the crowd from first to last bowl...
Look at the score, and the pressure on both players
Change of dynamic, same pressure
Last bowl delivered, game shot played

John wonders whether Grant is going to make a speech or phone a takeaway
Grant comes out with a wonderful speech, and John is delighted he made the right choice :-]
