Rothesay Bowling Club enjoyed a double dose of success in the Argyll and Bute Bowling Association’s finals on Saturday.

On their home green, Rothesay’s Cathy McMurchie, Joan Reynolds and Agnes Connell won the Argyll and Bute ladies’ triples title, while at Upper Cowal, Alan Cowan, Johnny Walker, John Gilchrist and Matt Martin were crowned Argyll and Bute gents’ rinks champions.

Rothesay only just missed out on three more titles over the course of the day, with the ladies’ pairs and rinks and the gents’ triples all reaching their finals but having to settle for runner-up spot.

The following day the club’s Top Ten defeated visitors from Argyll Campbeltown BC in a close fought game.
