Saltcoats Bowling Club recently held a very successful open pairs tournament sponsored by Gerry’s Taxis.

After five round robins of bowling and a further 12 ends in the semis and final, the outright winners on the day were Jim O`Hare and John Paton of Saltcoats Bowling Club. The runners-up were Scott Bradley and Brian Fleming, also members of Saltcoats.

The trophy was presented, and sponsored by, by Mary Barnett.

A spokesman from Saltcoats Bowling Club said: “Well done to all who attended to make this another excellent day’s bowling. Also big thanks to the kitchen staff who provided an open kitchen on the day.”
