2018 Northern Triples Final

On a sunny windy bright autumnal Sunday afternoon we finally got around to playing the last Scottish final of the year between the Holders Garry Harrison, Gordon Wilson jnr and Jamie Reid against the challengers John Newall , Craig Snodgrass and John Urquhart,

Eagerley supported by the legend that is Kenny Dixon,Dave Smith,Kenny Lawrence and here to support his brother former Northern Champ Bo Urquhart.

the holders got off to a great start with a 4 at the first, they were also lying well at the second with at least another 4 when J.Urquhart played a brilliant saving draw to get them off the mark ( 4-1 )

the next few ends were played out and the score got to about 7-3 and the tables were turned the challengers were lying at least 6 shots and Jamie drew in with his last bowl to take a 1, there was a lot of great bowls being played by all players and the shot bowl was changing hands several times throughout the course of each end, after a few more ends of one’s and two’s being scored the score levelled out at 10 -7 to the holders, there then followed a three and a one to make the score 14-7 after  the challengers had a couple of chances the next two ends and had a chance at a take out to maybe get a 5 but a narrow miss and this got them only two singles  making the score now 14-9 with ends running out, at end 13 the holders picked up a 1 so with 2 to go they had stretched their lead to 6, at the second last end John Urquhart, and squad had to look to get  big score but Jamie’s team were playing neat bowls and just covering any big score losses and just mixing and matching the bowls, J. Urquhart wins the fourteenth end with just a 1 so Jamie and crew 5 up at the last and some great bowls here by both leads which was reiterated by the seconds , so with J. Urquhart lying 2 it wasn’t going to be enough he attempted the burn with his 1st which didn’t miss by much, the 2nd though was spot on and the end was to be replayed, good standard of bowls once again played by all players and it was the challengers who had to force things with Garry ,Gogs and Jamie just covering any big scores mixing and matching but for John Newall ,Craig and John Urquhart it didn’t come of this time and the winners for the second year running Garry Harrison,Gordon Wilson jnr and Jamie Reid a big well done and Congratulations.To the runners up John Newall, Craig Snodgrass and John Urquhart. well done for a great final played in the right spirit and enjoyed a few drinks in the clubhouse after.
