Jean Moffat skipped her Craigmore team to victory in the annual ladies’ triples day at Rothesay Bowling Club on Sunday.

The day’s forecast rain largely held off to allow 14 teams from Kingswood in Glasgow, Gourock Park, Colintraive, Ardbeg, Craigmore and Rothesay to take part in the competition, with Jean’s Craigmore triple defeating Ardbeg in the final.

The weekend’s other winners at Rothesay were John Gilchrist and Craig McKellar, who beat Mavis Knowles and Brian McKillop in the final of the Robin Sprowl Memorial Trophy on Saturday, the victorious pair ensuring success only with John’s last bowl of the game.
