ARDROSSAN Bowling Club finally got their hands on some silverware at the weekend after three near misses.

The gents team had previously finished runners-up in the North Ayrshire Bowling League, in the David Scaife Memorial Cup and the Ayrshire Top Ten and travelled to West Kilbride on Saturday to take on the hosts in the final of the North Ayrshire Bowling League’s Challenge Cup.

A tense affair from the start, league champions Kilbride quickly raced into a lead and looked as if they were on their way to winning an unprecedented treble but Ardrossan had other ideas.

Through the second half of the game they rallied and picked up shots across the green in a similar way they did in the final game of the league but on this occasion they made sure that a trophy would be heading back down the coast.

Thanks on the day went to West Kilbride for hosting the game and to Ferrier Pumps for their kind sponsorship of the competition before the league season was closed for the 2019 season.
