Rothesay Bowling Club’s Donald McKellar won his senior singles and mixed pairs ties as the local Bowls Scotland qualifying competitions got under way this week.

Having won both his senior singles ties at Ardbeg Bowling Club on Thursday to progress to the third round, Donald then teamed up with Violet Westland on Sunday to defeat Dot and Ian McGrowther of Innellan in the District 26 semi-final.

At the same time as Donald and Violet were winning their last four tie at Rothesay on Sunday, the local competition for the Tommy Brady Centenary Triples was being won by Johnny Walker (skip), John MacPherson and Brian MacKillop - the trio each taking home steak pie dinners in addition to securing the trophy.
