3 TROPHY WINNER
3 TROPHY WINNER

TRIPLE carpet bowling winner Ann Carruthers from Bearsden proudly shows off the trophies she won in the Single Cup, Champions and The Challenge Cup - all on the same day. The retired nurse (75), who has only been playing for St Andrew’s Carpet Bowling Club for the past three years, said this was the first time it had every happened in the club and says no one can remember it happening at any other club in the district.

In the singles Ann beat Dorothy Mclean 13-3 and in the Champions she beat Charles McGeever 12-3. She paired up with Patrick Jenkins in the Challenge Cup to win 8-6, although because she played so many games that day she is unsure who her competitors were. The competition took place on Thursday June 2 and she was presented with her trophies the following Thursday. She said: “I couldn’t believe it when I got so many shots near the jack.”
