In fact, with Covid-19 restrictions being lifted to level two, it was the club’s first trophy tournament in two years.

The traditional Starrett Cup was on offer and a total of 30 players took to the green to contest the title and the silverware.The format was threebowl triples, with every team playing a total of four games of five ends.The winning team would have to collect the most wins and shots throughout the afternoon to claim the trophy, which some of them last contested in 2019.The competition was very close, with no team managing more than two wins.However, with two wins and one draw, and a superior shots difference, the winners were Babs Hogg, Neil Haig and Robbie Lindores.Haig is new to bowling and won his first trophy at the club at the first time of asking.
