Wigtownshire Bowling Association

The WBA county team played Glasgow East last Saturday at West End bowling green in their last county match for the 2016 season. After the first five ends, the Glasgow team held a narrow five shot klead, but in the next five ends the Wigtownshire team took control of the match and had a 12 shot lead at the halfway stage. The WBA team extended that lead to win the match 137 to 117 after 21 ends.

After the match, the players had their meal at which Wigtownshire President A Hanlin thanked the players for coming forward to represent the county in this year’s championship and that they would try again in 2017 to win the Scottish Championships. The WBA finished sixth overall in the south section.
