There are 16 teams competing in this year’s Rothesay Motor Services winter league tournament at Port Bannatyne.
There was a winning start for defending champions Liam Shanks and David Greer with a hard fought 2 up win over Alan Stewart and Jim Hinshelwood, proving they will again be hard to beat.
There are four new members this winter Roddie, Ryan and Matthew Leitch along with John Whitelaw. They all found the going tough with first day defeats but are sure to find their feet in the weeks to come.
Results from League A in week one are as follows: Standaloft/Whitelaw bt Dunn/ Marshall 1 up; Shaw/Jardine bt McKirdy/Whitelaw 6&4; Livingstone/McArthur bt Reid/ Crichton 4&3; Thom/McIntyre bt Ivory/Leitch 64.
