Renshaw Championship Finals
Renfrew Bowling Club
Sunday 4th June, 2017
Once again the sun graced the Renshaw Finals, held at Renfrew Bowling Club, home of the Renshaw President Alan McDonald (left). The green looked to be in very good condition with the rinks giving the players a big draw on either hand, and also looked to be fast. In the singles final, last year’s beaten finalist Neil Wilson, Lochwinnoch overcame the challenge of Gordon Johnstone from Arthurlie by a score of 21 to 14.

The junior singles was contested by Ross Stewart from Renfrew and a two time winner in Daniel McCusker from Arthurlie, Daniel being victorious for the third time by a score of 21-11.
In the secretary’s singles which was held earlier in the day Kenny Urquhart from Barrhead gained victory by a score of 21-13 over Jim Shearer from Inchinnan.
The pairs was a contest between Woodlands and Lochwinnoch. The Woodlands pair of Gavin Anderson and Peter Watson triumphed over John Mitchell and Gavin Monaghan by the score of 13-11, a very tight game indeed. As an aside Colin Selvey from Woodlands should have been playing, but due to a horrific accident at work had to be substituted. We all wish Colin a speedy recovery.
Elderslie Wallace and Brookfield fought for the triples championship with the triple of George McAusland, Derek Mains, and Graeme Pringle outscoring John Campbell, T Campbell Blaikie, and Andy McLaughlin by a score of 18-6.
In the rinks championship, the Renfrew fours of Alex Rennie, Tom Gray, Graham Watson and Martin Duncan took the title from the Kilbarchan team of Alex Ritchie, Stewart Perrie, Gordon Finnigan, and Adam Semple 18-14.
And finally to the senior triples and the team of Danny Gill, Tom Faith, and George Bain representing J G Fleming outscoring the triple of Fulton McCard, David Dougan and Charlie Anderson from Shanks by the slim margin of 14-13.
Thanks go to the umpires of Gerry Mulholland, Jim Mess, John and Mary McGroarty and to Renfrew Bowling Club for the great day, and to the participants for making the finals a spectacular display of bowling.
