14 January 2019Legion Singles win for Linklater
Stevie Linklater won the Kirkwall Legion singles beating Derek Firth in the final. Sports convener Duncan Cameron is pictured with them at the presentation.
The leagues resumed last week and there were few signs of festive hangovers on show, with a lot on the scorecards in both leagues.
The Legion resumed where they had finished, by winning big over the Nomads, whilst Commodores also demolished the Bilco Boys.
A close match was expected between Untouchables 'A' and the Golf club, and so it proved, with the Golfers winning 8-4.
The other Untouchables side beat Warriors by the same score in what looks by the scorecard like an exciting match. Ill health and weather disruption affected the other matches scheduled for the week.
The 'B' league boys managed to fulfil all fixtures and two of the main promotion hopefuls both drew; Murray Arms with Tankerness and RBL2 with Tigers.
Exiles romped to a victory over Muppets to extend their lead at the top, whilst Quoyburray and Shapinsay also had convincing wins over Sanday 'B' and Sands.
The Young Loons rounded off the week with a comfortable result against the Vikings.
Incidently, well done to all teams who played catch-up matches over the festive period, a great effort was produced in ensuring that the leagues were all caught up in time and is greatly appreciated.
Not A KDDL competition, but very much supported by league players, the Kirkwall Legion Singles took place on Friday night, when Stevie Linklater beat Derek Firth in the final.
The Legion Doubles takes place this Friday, before the resumption of the league ranking competitions the following week, with the annual KDDL outing to the Tankerness Hall for the Craigie Singles.
